s work commences for the construction of a new, state of the art hockey rmk on campus, thoughts 
' for some may turn to an earher rink, constructed some 74 years ago with far fewer "bells and whis- 
Ltles" than the rink due to open next year. John Ragle, headmaster from 1972-1983, describes the 
rink in his book, Governor Dummer Academy History, 1763-1963: 

"The story of the next several years [post -1930] at the Academy is, first and foremost, the story of an amaz- 
ing and dynamic growth in which everyone connected with the school seemed to have a part. A key factor 
in this growth is the spontaneous enthusiasm of the boys themselves, who supported every project and, 
indeed, on some occasions, assumed a leadership role. The Class of 1932 supphed the labor to dig nine hun- 
dred feet of ditches to prepare proper drainage for portions of Morse Field, every senior spending several 
hours m the trenches during May The following fall, after twenty boys directed by Mr. Dunning and Mr. 
Kirk of the faculty had done the preliminary work, sixty boys voluntarily devoted their athletic period every 
afternoon between the Thanksgiving recess and the Christmas hoHdays to constructing an earthen dam 
eighty feet long and five feet high to provide the school with a second hockey rmk in the low land in front 
of where Ingham House now stands." '-4-

headmaster's message 

A college president I know is fond of saying that good schools 
are places constantly "under construction." Such schools regularly 
make infrastructure improvements and build new facilities to meet 
the evolving needs of the student body. Curriculum is frequently 
under review to ensure its relevance in a changing world. The 
young people who enroll are exposed daily to new ideas and expe- 
riences that will accelerate the process of growth and self discovery. 
The teachers are lifelong learners who continually hone their ped- 
agogical skills and command of their disciplines. 

This sort of "construction," I am happy to report, is happening 
at The Governor's Academy in a big way. Firstly, we are about to 
embark on a series of major building projects. We expect to break 
ground in late October for a new dormitory, a project that has been 
part of our long range strategic plan and will allow us to convert the 
Phillips dormitory into much needed office and administrative 
space and the Boynton dormitory into additional faculty housing. 
The new building will house 30 students and contain three faculty 
apartments. The size of the school will not change but this new 
building may allow us to slightly increase the percentage of board- 
ing girls we admit. We expect this new residence to be ready for the 
start of the 2007-08 school year. In addition, thanks to the generos- 
ity of a lead donor, construction on our new hockey rink will com- 
mence in early November. This facility is a long overdue upgrade 
from the venerable but antiquated Frost rink. Lastly, in the realm of 
new facilities, we plan to install an artificial turf surface behind the 
Farmhouse in the late fall. This state of the art playing surface will 
significantly reduce the cancelled games and practices that our var- 
sity and junior varsity athletes frequently experience due to the exi- 
gencies of the New England weather. 

In spring 2007, we will begin a student/faculty exchange with 
the Alliance School for Boys and the Kenya High School for Girls. 
Both boarding schools are located outside of Nairobi, Kenya. Three 
or four Academy students, along with a faculty member, will spend 
the month of March at these schools and then return to Byfield 
accompanied by two Kenyan students and one of their faculty. Our 
African visitors will stay at the Academy for the remainder of our 
spring term. In another initiative, the Academic Office and the 
Language Department are planning for the introduction of 
Mandarin Chinese into the curriculum beginning in the fall of 
2007. The Kenyan exchange and this new linguistic option coupled 

with the History Department's introduction of a non- Western com- 
ponent to the freshman history program are part of the Academy's 
commitment to offer a global education to our students. 

Always mindful of the importance of making our curriculum 
responsive to the needs of our students, I recently appointed a "Blue 
Ribbon Panel" comprised of teachers froin every discipline to 
examine, evaluate and measure our academic curriculum and daily 
schedule against our stated core values. The committee will make 
recommendations to the full faculty next spring. Do our current 
offerings, routines and practices best serve the interests of our stu- 
dents? Do we need to consider incorporating more thematic 
threads throughout our curriculum (global issues, environmental 
concerns, current events, for instance)? Should w^e consider creating 
a signature course or program that takes advantage of our unique 
location? Does our schedule allow for sufficient classroom contact 
time between teachers and students? Does the conflict-free block 
for the arts need to be re-evaluated? If our mission is to prepare 
young people for Hfe, do we provide sufficient attention to issues of 
health and wellness? These are just a few of the issues this commit- 
tee will consider. 

During the 2005-2006 academic year, 40 members of our fac- 
ulty took advantage of professional development funding provided 
by the Academy. Their endeavors ranged from academic work in 
pursuit of advanced degrees, scientific field studies and participation 
in Advanced Placement workshops, internet conferences, literary 
seminars, writing symposiums, ceramics and art workshops, diversity 
conferences and professional certification institutes. These opportu- 
nities for professional growth help to build on the tradition of good 
teaching that has always been part of the Academy. 

Another beautiful fall in Byfield passes and winter beckons. As 
always, I invite you to visit our bucolic and historic campus to view 
our new building projects, but also to see firsthand how the process 
of helping young men and women lay the foundations for fulfilled 
and rewarding lives continues at the Academy - a tradition begun 
more than 244 years ago.

A new hockey rink, turf field, dormi- 
tory and four tennis courts will be com- 
pleted by this time next year. The whirlwind 
of construction projects will result in better 
facilities and amenities for everyone on cam- 
pus, according to Headmaster Marty 

Plans for the rink began last year when 
an anonymous donor gave the lead gift that 
assured that the dream of new ice could 
become a reality. Thirteen months of con- 
struction will precede demolition of the 
venerable Murphy-Frost Arena. The project 
is being built by William A. Berry and Son, 
the construction company that also built the 
school's math/science building, performing 
arts center, and library; the architectural 
group is CBT, the firm responsible for 
designing the performing arts center. As the 
school's construction and design consultant 
Peter Erickson explains, these two firms 
know the campus, its needs and its con- 
straints. Upon completion, the rink will be 
48,000 square feet and will include a larger 
sheet of ice than the old rink, lots of extra 
parking, a concession stand, more locker 
rooms, a conference room, and twice the 
seating of the old rink. Located on Perkins 
Field, the rink should be open for the '07- 
'08 season, according to Director of Athletics 
Bert McLain. 

Ground has already been broken for the 
new dormitory being built on the former 
site of the tennis courts adjacent to Moody 
and in front of Farmhouse. TMS, the archi- 
tectural firm that made the plans for the 
recent Student Center expansion, designed 
the dorm. The grade level and gender of the 
prospective residents have yet to be decided, 
but there will be room for .^0 students and 

three faculty dorm parents in the 15,000 
square-foot building. A new dorm had 
always been a priority, but the timetable was 
moved up when the upper levels of Boynton 
and Phillips were closed last summer due to 
lack of adequate means of egress. 
Renovations to Phillips will provide needed 
space for more administrative ofiices. The 
dorm will be ready for occupancy next 
August, after nine months of planning and 

Four new tennis courts wiD be built in 
the wooded area to the northwest of the 
track, the location determined by the wet- 
lands in the area. There will be a road con- 
structed to the courts which will provide 
easy access. Completion is set for summer 

Last, but not least, work on a new turf 
field began in early October. The field will 
be ready, if not before Christmas, then in the 
spring. The school's lower fields are very 
often under water, explams Bert McLain, 
thus hampering the sub-varsity teams enor- 
mously. The new field will allow a great deal 
of flexibility for use by varsity and sub-var- 
sity field hockey, soccer and lacrosse teams. 
Finding an appropriate location for the turf 
field presented many challenges, according 
to McLain, but great efforts were made to 
preserve as many trees as possible while plac- 
ing the fickl ni ,in advantageous spot. 

The new construction, according to 
Chief Financial Officer Dick Savage, is "the 
most ambitious set of pnijects in the school's

Players preparing for The Fall Classic 

Golf Tournament 
Way Above Par 

More than 100 alumni, parents, and 
friends were on hand for the Fall Golf 
Classic sponsored by the Alumni Council on 
September 25 at the Essex County Club in 
Manchester-By-The-Sea, MA. Following 
registration and lunch, participants played a 
best-ball format at fuU handicap with prizes 
in both low net and gross categories on the 
famed Donald Ross-designed course. 

A hole-in-one contest for a Jeep 
Commander, closest to the pin and long 
drive contests for men and women, a putting 
contest, and raffle prizes were all part of the 
fun-fiUed day. Alumni Council President 
Catherine Burgess '91 thanked the assem- 
bled crowd at the "19th hole" reception for 
attending and introduced Headmaster Marty 
Doggett who was most appreciative of the 
generosity of the participants. Special thanks 
to tournament, luncheon and reception 
sponsors, to faculty and staff sponsors, and to 
those who donated raffle items.

Cross '81 Hosts 
Washington Reception 

Alumni, parents 
and friends of The 
Governor's Academy 
trom the Washington 
DC area gathered at 
the Chevy Chase Club 
in Chevy Chase, 
Maryland on the evening of September 27, 
2006 to reconnect ■with each other and with 
The Academy. Dan Cross '81 hosted the 
reception and welcomed The Governor's 
Academy community. The highlight of the 
night was Headmaster Marty. Doggett's state 
of the school address. Marty discussed 
improvements to the physical campus now 
underway, a curriculum that will emphasize 
global issues, and the school's continued 
effiart to attract a talented and diverse stu- 
dent body. Following his state of the school 
address, Marty welcomed questions from the 
community. Associate Director of Admission 
Peter Kravchuck presented plans to broaden 
The Academy's geographic diversity both 
nationally and abroad. This event was one of 
five regional receptions that the school is 
hosting this fall including New York City, 
Portland (ME), Chicago and San Francisco. 
Thanks to Dan Cross, '81, and his wife 
Suzanne for making this event possible. 

Former Board 
President Honored 

Academy alumnus, past 
parent, and trustee Daniel M. 
Morgan '67, P'97'02 was hon- 
ored at a dedication ceremony 
on October 6 on campus. Dan 
has been a trustee since 1987 
and held the position of Board President for 
ten years until he stepped down in May 
2006. He continues to serve as a Trustee. To 
honor Dan's commitment to The Governor's 
Academy, his parents, Paul and Nancy, made 
a gift to create a terrace outside the Duncan 
Phillips Library. A bronze inscribed plaque 
affixed to a marble slab describes Dan's work 
for the Academy. 

The Morgan family has strong ties to 
the Academy. Paul Morgan, Dan's father, 
graduated in 1941, and Dan's uncle, Peter 
Morgan, graduated in 1943. Dan also has 
two children who graduated from the school 
in 1997 and 2002. 

The dedication at the new Daniel 
Murray Morgan Terrace was followed by 
cocktails and dinner in Frost Library. Invitees 
included Academy administrators, current 
and former trustees, members of the Class of 
1967 and members of the Morgan family.

Seventeen students at The Governor's 
Academy in Byfield have earned the desig- 
nation of AP Scholar by the College Board 
in recognition of their exceptional achieve- 
ment on the college-level Advanced

high schools. About 18 percent of the more 
than 1.3 million high school students in 
16,000 secondary schools worldwide who 
took AP Exams performed at a sufficiently 
high level to merit the recognition of AP 

At The Governor's Academy, Cameron 
Archibald of West Newbury, Brent Biehnski 
of Raleigh, NC, Mary Boadu of Bronx, NY, 
Nicholas Caro of Andover, Sarah Harmeling 
of North Reading, Kidong Kim of Seoul, 
Korea, Kathryn Malleck of Andover, David 
Shack of Andover, Elizabeth Tarr of Beverly, 
and Dana Vancisin of Hamilton qualified for 
the AP Scholar Award by completing three

Max LeSaffre of Andover, Chelsea 
Barnett of North Andover, Sean Andrews 
and Hunter Archibald of West Newbury, all 
juniors at the Academy, were recent recipi- 
ents of Excellence in Education Awards 
given by the Newburyport Five Cents 
Savings Bank. Winners received Savings 
Bonds and were honored with students from 

Amesbury, Triton, Newburyport, Pentucket 
and Whittier at a luncheon on September 

Derek Falvey '00 was the keynote 
speaker at the tenth annual presentation of 
the Excellence in Education Awards lunch- 
eon. Falvey, a graduate of Trinity College, 
now runs an independent company, Acuvar 

Creative. His own path to becoming an 
entrepreneur was a circuitous one, but per- 
haps a natural outgrowth of his coUege stud- 
ies in marketing and computer science. 
"Have dreams and follow those dreams," he 
advised his audience, "but don't be afraid to 
follow a path that you might not expect." 

Academy Serves Fair Trade Coffee 

The Governor's Academy Dining 
Services now serves Pura Vida Fair Trade 
Certified and Organic Coffees in the dining 
hall. Fair Trade coffee benefits both coffee- 
farming families and at-risk children around 
the world. The decision to switch to fair 
trade coffee was made because of a growing 
environmental awareness on campus, accord- 
ing to Director of Dining Services David 
Alonzi. "I think we have a responsibility to 
nurture sustainability and set an example for 
the students," Alonzi explains. "Fair Trade 
and Organic coffees cost a little more, but 

the growing popularity has stabilized the 
price and brought it within our reach. The 
coffees support children's charities dedicated 
to feeding, clothing and educating at-risk 
children in coffee-growing countries." 

Coffee that is certified Fair Trade and 
Organic helps farmers provide for their fam- 
ilies and protect the environment. The char- 
ities supported by Pura Vida focus on build- 
ing more hopeful futures for children in cof- 
fee-growing countries through meal centers, 
computer classrooms, soccer teams and other 
programs that strengthen the health, confi- 

dence, and spirit of at-risk children. Fair 
Trade is based on a direct relationship with 
producers, one in which they are paid a 
guaranteed living wage. "A Fair Trade floor 
price reduces the devastating effects of the 
boom-and-bust coffee market on farming 
families," Alonzi says. "Organic production 
helps protect the health of coffee producers 
and the surrounding environment. No 
chemical inputs (i.e. pesticides, synthetic fer- 
tilizers) are used in production. Serving Fair 
Trade Coffee is not only the right thing to 
do. It also tastes great."

trip ended in Paris with visits to the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre,Versailles, Montmartre, 
a walk on the Champs-Elysees, and a ride on a Bateau Mouche. 

German teacher John Seufert and art teacher Geoff Brace accompanied a group 
of 13 to Germany, where students enjoyed homestays in the suburbs, daily language 
classes in Munich, a weekend trip to Berlin, a visit to the BMW factory, and all the 
excitement of being in the host country for the 2006 FIFA World Cup Soccer

Metz to Edit Book on 
Science Careers 

Steve Metz, science teacher at the Academy, will edit 
and write the introduction to a new book for high 
school students that profiles professionals in diverse areas 
of science. All in a Day's Work will include case stories 
about people who use science every day in their careers. 
They range from science teacher to forensics technician, 
firefighter to historical archaeologist, astronaut to deep- 
cave explorer, roller coaster designer to sport biomech- 
anist. The essays previously appeared in the NSTA 
(National Science Teacher Association) journal. The 
Science Teacher. Metz is editor of The Science Teacher. 

New Website on Short List 
for Award 

The Governor's Academy new web site was a final- 
ist in this year's MITX Awards Educational Institution 
category. According to MITX (The Massachusetts 
Innovation and Technology Exchange), "The MITX 
Awards is the largest and most prestigious awards com- 
petition in the country for technology innovations and 
celebrates the best creative and technological accom- 
plishments emerging from New England." 

Director of Communications Ms. Judith Klcm and 
Associate Director of Communications Ms. Chrisde 
RawUns-Jackson, who worked closely with the website 
designers, were guests of the developer, Magic Hour, at 
the award banquet on November 9 at the Copley Place 
Marriott. About 1 ,r)00 people attended. 


Last year, Headmaster 
Marty Doggett formed a Long 
Range Library Planning 
Committee to write a five- '"'„' 

year plan to be submitted to 't^^---\u.^. :\r'^^^^^, 

the Massachusetts Board of r-^ 
Library Commissioners. While 
the committee is waiting to 

hear if its plan is accepted, the librarians are moving forward with 
some of the action plans generated in meetings. This fall the focus is 
on exploring some of the new online web tools and to applying them 
to the vision and mission of the librarians. Links to all these are found 
on the Academy's website According 
to Director of Library Services, Susan Chase. (Select Academics and 
then Library. Make sure pop-ups are enabled on your computer as 
each opens in a new window.) 

The library staff started with a blog last winter; this fall they eval- 
uated its impact. While they had thought it would be a wonderful way 
to communicate new resources and search tools to students, the librar- 
ians discovered that the audience was primarily parents and alums. 
Why would a student read about the Hbrary when he could ask a 
librarian face-to-face or see displays in person? Thus, the librarians 
adjusted their focus to inform readers about what's happening in the 
library. All three 0en Brown, Susan Chase, and Monica Blondin) will 
be contributing to the blog each week to offer different perspectives 
on the library program. 

As they found themselves taking more and more pictures to use 
on their blog, they wanted a space to share all of them. Take a look at 
their Flickr site for library scenes, events, and displays. The intent is to 
document not only the vibrant library program but also how the 
library looks throughout the seasons. 

New books arrive each month in the library. With the new 
LibraryThing account, all of the new additions to the library collec- 
tion are announced. An RSS feed to the blog displays five random 
titles each time the blog is opened. 

The latest tool is, a social bookmarking site that allows 
the library administrators to create a list of bookmarks which can be 
accessed from any computer on the Web.They add tags to create order 
and an index format. Currently, the librarians are using it for profes- 
sional development, sharing among themselves some of their favorite 
librarian online tools. However, they see the potential implications for 
group projects and sharing research. 

This fall Jen Brown and Susan Chase attended Internet Librarian 
International where the major focus was on new online tools for 
libraries. They gained insight into selecting the new tools which not 
only further their program but which students should master to be 
successful information users in the 21st century. They'll share what 
they learn on their blog and welcome comments from readers. 

Student Paper on 

Juvenile Correction 

Facility Published in Review 

Lucy Truesdell Ellis '07 of 
Lynnfield, MA, recently became the 
fourth Academy student to be published 
in The Concord Review, the only jour- 
nal devoted to exceptional scholarship 
by high school students. Her paper, pre- 
pared for Bill Quigley's AP US History 
course, studied the Swanson Facility at 
Tallulah, a juvenile correction facility 
run by a private company and contracted 
by the state of Louisiana. 

"Lucy has written an illuminating 
history about a recent privatization ini- 
tiative that went terribly awry: a state's 
awarding of a contract to a private, for- 
profit company to build and manage a 
juvenile detention facility," says Quigley. 
"It is a great tribute to Lucy that her 
paper, well researched and finely ren- 
dered, has been published in a national 
showcase of outstanding high school 

When Lucy first contemplated a 
topic for her history thesis paper, she 
focused on the Supreme Court case. In 
re: Gault (1967), that gave juveniles the 
right to an attorney and the same prece- 
dents as adults on trial. "I wanted to do 
something that didn't come from a his- 
tory book," she explains, "something that 
would be interesting and different. 
Before I wrote it I thought I would 
probably want to be a lawyer and now I 
still do." As Lucy was looking up names 

involved in that case she came across 
Tallulah and became intrigued. The 
youth facility, operated privately but 
contracted by the state, opened in 1994 
in Louisiana. 

Inmates included young thieves and 
murderers, but also teens who were 
merely caught driving without a license. 
What Lucy discovered, in her research of 
old news articles, the website of the 
Louisiana state government, and various 
books, was that adolescents often got 
stuck at Tallulah; the place that was sup- 
posed to offer rehabilitation actually 
offered no treatment and was really 
a prison. The guards hired by 
Transamerican Development Inc., the 
private contractor, were not trained weU. 
Inmates were beaten by guards and each 
other without intervention. In addition 
to the physical abuse came emotional 
neglect. Youths were often placed in soli- 
tary confinement for days, a procedure 
clearly outlawed by the courts in In re: 

Eventually there was a groundswell 
of public concern spearheaded by groups 
of parents and lawyers. Marches fol- 
lowed, although some parents feared ret- 
ribution for their children if they com- 
plained of conditions. Soon the Justice 
Department of the federal government 
became involved and sued the State of 
Louisiana for the abuse and denial of 

constitutional rights. Though there was a 
series of investigations and the state 
committed to change, nothing really 
advanced. Part of the problem was the 
difficulty the state had canceling 
their contract with Transamerican 
Development Inc. without losing con- 
siderable money. Finally, in 2002, a 
lawyer named Richard Marks was 
brought in and devised a way to dissolve 
the contract. By 2003, the facility was 
closed and the residents were moved 
elsewhere. A new bill, called a Juvenile 
Justice Reform Act, was enacted and a 
movement to reform all state juvenile 
facilities gained momentum. What 
started as a blemish in Louisiana's history 
became a model for other states of how 
to turn around a bad system of care 
delivery to youths. 

Most people don't really think 
about the issue of care and incarceration 
of delinquent youths, Lucy fears. "They 
just push it aside. We have to remember 
that it's not going to help if you just 
throw these kids in jail. That's not going 
to change anything." E

A NEW pARTSnership 


Eighty-four Broadway hopefuls came out of the wings and pated in classes taught by theater professionals in music theater, 

entered center stage at The Governor's Academy in July, inaugurat- 
ing a new partnership with North Shore Music Theatre. 

NSMT, the largest non-profit producing theater in New 
England, welcomes approximately 350,000 patrons annually. In 
recent years, NSMT has gained a national and regional reputation 
for artistic achievement, specifically in the areas of developing new 
works and providing outstanding theater arts and education pro- 

dance, and acting. Master classes with New York actors were an 
added opportunity each week. After lunch, the teens rehearsed 
from 1 p.m. until 6 p.m. for their upcoming performances. To say 
Stage Four is an intense training program is an understatement. 

From all accounts, the experience was a huge success for 
everyone involved. Audiences raved about the performances and 
about The Performing Arts Center. "The Governor's Academy's 

grams. In addition to producing a six-musical subscription series, extraordinary staff was extremely helpful, respectful and celebratory 

a production of /I Christmas Carol and an acclaimed concert series, 
NSMT offers year-round classes for children and an extensive sum- 
mer training program. Indeed, NSMT has become one of the 
region's leading providers of theater arts and education. 

As the theater's education program has grown under the lead- 
ership of Director Burgess Clark, it has outgrown the rehearsal and 
performance space available at the hom.e of the Beverly theater. In 
past summers, the training program has used satellite facilities in 
Marblehead and at Pingree 
School, but this year they were 
looking for a new venue. The 
Governor's Academy, with our 
state of the art facility, seemed the 
perfect fit to Clark as well as to 
Education Coordinator Jason 
Verhoosky and Assistant Director 
of Education Toby Schine when 
the Academy's Summer Programs 
Director Karen Gold invited them 
to campus. 

The goal of the Summer 
Stages program is to provide pro- 
fessional training and opportuni- 
ties for youth in the areas of music 
theater, dance and acting. Stage 
Three is a training and perform- 
ance program for eight to 13-year-olds. Participants spent three 
weeks in classes and rehearsals preparing for a workshop produc- 
tion of the musical Once On This Island Jr. Mornings were spent in 
classes in acting, movement and music theater performance 
Monday through Thursday with two Friday Master Classes. 
Afternoons were devoted to rehearsals. 

Stage Four is an intensive pre-professional training program 
for students interested in the profession of music theater. Led by 
Broadway professionals, the five-week program included master 
classes taught by professional actors, workshops led by professional 
educators and rehearsals for full-scale musical productions of 
Sweeney Todd and Footloose.The 54 students, ages 13 to 18, arrived 
every morning at 9 a.m. From then until 12:30 p.m. they partici- 

in hosting NSMT's staff and students," said Clark. "We were over- 
whelmed with the number of patrons who attended the produc- 
tion and enjoyed the beautiful state of the art facility." Gold con- 
curs. "Working with North Shore Music Theatre's Stage Four was 
a pleasure. The students and staff were remarkably talented, and 
the shows were fabulous! Literally, hundreds of people from all 
over New England attended the performances and enjoyed The 
Performing Arts Center." 

The hope is that the connec- 
tion between The Governor's 
Academy and North Shore 
Music Theatre will continue. 
"The partnership between 
NSMT and TGA has limidess 
potential," Clark believes. "It's a 
win-win for both NSMT and 
The Governor's Academy and we 
look forward to a long and 
healthy partnership. The ultimate 
goal is for an international music 
theater program through North 
Shore Music Theatre where stu- 
dents can come and be chal- 
Footloose cast performs at the Academy lenged and celebrated at The 

Governor's Academy." Schine 
adds, "The facility is beautiful. 
The campus is a perfect blend of beauty, architecture, nature and 
art. It's a perfect location to create music theater." 

Gold shares that vision. "Now, as we look to a five-year col- 
laboration with North Shore Music Theatre, I can only imagine the 
benefits for our community," she says. "NSMT is eager to expand 
its relationship with The Governor's Academy and share technical 
and musical expertise with our students and faculty throughout 
the school year, not just in the summer, it is exciting to think 
about the potential impact on our current arts program, the draw 
for our admissions office and the school's outreach, not just to New 
England, but globally. Like us, NSMT's goal is to draw students 
from all over the country and the world. This is an exciting part- 
nership!" S^ 

llicArchoii -^ Fall 2(KI6 1 I 

By Tenya Fitzgerald '00 

An artist's journey is never simple.There 
are always twists and turns leading to some- 
times surprising intersections and junctures. 
Dan dayman, Class of '75, started his edu- 
cational and artistic quest at The Governor's 
Academy in the fall of 1 97 1 , his first step to 
becoming what he is today- a true working 
studio artist. 

Dan reflects fondly on his years at The 
Governor's Academy. He says, "Within ten 
minutes of arriving at GDA as a freshman, I 
knew this was the place for me." Even 
though GDA did not have the extensive and 
well-established fine arts programs of today, 
Dan firmly believes that he had the support 
he needed to pursue a career in the arts. Of 
utmost importance was the encouragement 
of his sophomore dorm master, Heb Evans, 
who taught him math for two years and 
coached him as a wrestler for all four years. 
This teacher/student connection was pivotal 
for Dan in his GDA experience. Although 
Dan was a hard working but average 
wrestler, Evans treated him like a champion 
and took an avid interest in his musical and 
dramatic talents. 

Dan became more focused on theater 
after his sophomore year. English teacher and 
school theater director John Rice ignited 
Dan's interest in technical theater. The 
teacher's inquisitive nature inspired Dan's 
naturally curious mind to explore the 

dynamics of set design and lighting. Dan 
describes John Rice as a former marine who 
brought the discipline of the service into his 
daily style of teaching and coaching. 

Aware that there was not an extensive 
visual arts program in the 1970s, the faculty 
and staff made certain arrangements to 
accommodate a creatively driven student 
such as Dan Clayman. A staff member from 
the maintenance crew and a faculty member 
arranged for Dan and some fellow students 
who were interested in sculpture to take 
informal Saturday classes to learn the safe use 
of power tools. This basic knowledge of 
power tools gave Dan a great foundation for 
his future career as a sculptor; he still appre- 
ciates the school's response to his interests in 
such an out-of-the-box fashion. 

After graduating in the spring of 1975, 
Dan's inclinations were still more towards 
the technical aspects of theater rather than 
the visual arts. He began his freshman year 
at Connecticut College studying applied 
music, technical theater, and elementary 
education. The following year he took a 
leave and spent a year of travel and work. 
When he returned to Connecticut College 
in the fall of 1977, his father was diagnosed 
with cancer and passed away in October of 
that year. After the death of his father, Dan 
chose not to return to Connecticut College 
but decided, instead, to pursue a career in the 


theater. For the next three years, Dan 
worked in theater and modern dance as a 
Hghting designer and stage manager. 

In the summer of 1981, Dan returned 
to his studies at the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst, this time focusing 
on ceramics and appHed music. UMass did 
not prove to be the best fit for Dan and he 
left after one year to work in the studio of 
Josh Simpson, an artist living in Shelburne 
Falls, MA. There he met his future wife, 
Terri Getz. They have been married for 25 

During the fall of 1983, 
Dan enrolled at the Rhode 
Island School of Design in 
Providence, RI. Finally, he 
felt he had found a good 
match for his talents and 
interests. "More than any- 
thing, my time at RISD 
taught me to challenge my 
preconceived ideas about art 
and life in general," he recalls 
fondly. At first he focused on 
glass design before turning to 
glass sculpture and his life- 
long commitment to a career 
in the visual arts. He gradu- 
ated from RISD in 1986 at 
the age of 29 with a 
Bachelor of Fine Arts. 

Today, 20 years after his 
graduation from RISD, Dan 
enjoys a career as a successful 
full-time studio artist. He 
lectures extensively at col- 
leges and museums; his work 
is in the permanent collec- 
tions of several museums and 
often is commissioned by 
corporations. He will be in 
an exhibit at Habatat 
Galleries in Detroit in 2007 
and will have a major solo 
exhibition at the Mmt Museum in 
Charlotte, North Carolina in January of 

Dan lives near Providence with his wife 
Terri and their twin teenage daughters, 
Molly and Emma. He describes his life as an 
artist and his work m the following way: 

"I am in contact with my work everyday. Most 
days I come to the studio as the working artist. 
Other days I come as an observer, to see what 

the 'artist' is doing. The work is continual, an 
ahvays evolving exploration of simple forms. 
Using a vocabulary of extremely simple forms 
whose scale ranges from three to nine feet, these 
objects describe volumes in space. Some of the 
pieces are easily identifiable as vessels and may 
allude to holding volumes of water. Others are 
pure abstraction holding only quantities of air 
and space. By taking away any real solid 
mass, I am left with just the skins of glass, 
bronze or graphite that define a measure of 
capacity. Other objects identifiable as a ramp. 

which divide space with a simple line or as a 
wheel which makes the center volume of air as 
important as the while structure itself." 
Glass has been Dan's primary medium 
for the past 25 years. He often uses a process 
of glasswork called pate de verrc, in wlinh 
tiny pieces of crushed glass are worked into 
a paste and added to the artwork before 
being fired m .i kiln. Using a variety of geo- 
metrical shapes, Dan often combines the 
glass with bronze forms to create an effect 

that suggests ancient tools or ceremonial 
objects. Dan also creates large cast glass 
sculptures that often tower in height and soar 
into space. The placement and inclusion of 
light has always played a large role in Dan's 
work, but this sensibility is particularly 
prominent in his recent piece entitled, "Line, 
Form, and Shadow." 

This large-scale installation, featured in 
the Alma & Morton Tarlow Gallery at the 
Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, MA, is a 
digression from Dan's predominant use of 
glass in his artwork. The 
installation soars 17 feet 
in height and uses trace 
paper, a translucent and 
light conducting mate- 
rial. Even though it is a 
change of direction in 
material use for Dan, this 
immense sculpture still 
uses the incorporation of 
light as a central theme, 
much like his previous 
works. "Over the past 
four years," Dan reflects, 
"my studio ■work has 
centered around the cre- 
ation of large-scale glass 
castings that thematicaUy 
reference the 'capturing 
of light'. One of the 
many mysteries of light is 
that it refuses to reveal 
any of its essence until it 
reflects on something 
other than itself." 

"Line, Form and 
Shadow" features two 
large cone-shaped sculp- 
tures constructed with 
tiny wires and architec- 
tural trace paper. The 
installation is surrounded 
by carefully placed flood 
and spot lights so that light is channeled 
down through the cones. Since the installa- 
tion is so large, viewers arc invited to step 
inside the cones and become an active in the artwork. 

I ),in"s road from the classrooms and 
workshops of The Academy to his life as an 
artist (^f renown may not ha\'c hi-ni str.iight, 
but every turn offered anolhcr opportunity 
and a new inspiration to a mind of astound- 
ing creativity and imagination.*^

Jon Guy journaling in front of the monument 
at Gettysburg dedicated to the Massachusetts 
19th Volunteer Regiment 

During a particularly philosophical 
one-mile ride to Triton Middle School the 
other morning, my 13-year-old, Nick, was 
busily critiquing a recent discussion his class 
had had about the merit of various profes- 
sions. "Of course doctors and lawyers make 
much more money than teachers," he 
observed. "But without good teachers, how 
could they have become doctors and 
lawyers? Who got them there?" Of course I 
agreed with him, but on the one-mile ride 
home, I found myself continuing the conver- 
sation in my head. "So, is that why you went 
into teaching?" I asked myself. "Myself" 
shook her head slightly and said, "No, noth- 
ing so glorious as that." "Well, why, then?" I 
asked myself. This time, "Myself" came 
through. "Well, part of it," she mused, "is the 
gift of time together." 

This gift of time together has become a 

14 TheArchon ^^ Fall 2006 

particular blessing over the past few years, 
when the tugs and strains of daily demands 
can easily blemish the quality of our interac- 
tion as a family. As much time as either of 
my sons and I spent together during the 
school year, much of it was spent either 
shouting to each other in passing, or some- 
times even shouting in frustration. The time 
to sit, share, and relish together is not easily 
released amid the rigors of the academic 
year. Yet strangely, it was the King of Rigors 
— the dreaded junior thesis paper - that freed 
us, setting us off on the first of what I hope 
will become many journeys. And the young 
man we have most to thank for igniting our 
mutual wanderlust is one James B.Wiggin, a 
young New Hampshire man who died 141 
years ago, almost before he had time to live. 
James B.Wiggin was a country boy who 
loved his country enough to enlist in the 
Federal Army in 1862, and loved his family 
enough to write home frequently as the 
19th Massachusetts Regiment wound its 
way southward though a chain of bloody 
battles, in pursuit of Lee's army. Somewhat 
miraculously, a handful of his letters sur- 
vived, and as my son Jon and I poured over 
them in the Phillips Library of the Peabody 
Essex Museum, we found ourselves being 
drawn to him line by line. He was humble 
and down-to-earth, a young man striving to 
stay strong in the face of war. He endeared 
himself to us as much by his utter lack of 
pretense as his salty language. He was the 
kid next door who, for both Jon and me, 
painted a human face on the War Between 
the States. Slowly and steadily he crept into 
our lives; he became our secret obsession; he 
unlocked our need to understand how any 
man could enlist and endure such a horrible 
war, to the point where, one gray day in 
July 2004, we stood over his grave in 
Tamworth, New Hampshire, paying our 
respects. Ironically, he had survived the 
war, only to die from its effects just as the 
war ended. 

Completely smitten by James B.Wiggin 
and the thousand young men like him who 
comprised the relatively unheralded 19th 
Massachusetts Volunteers, Jon and I took 
advantage of a summer sabbatical award to 
retrace the path of that regiment. I suspect 
that we were each a little nervous about tak- 
ing off on such a romanticized whim. 
Trusting his almost encyclopedic knowledge 
of the causes and course of the war, I 
bestowed upon him full responsibiHty for 
deciding where we would go and when we 
would move on. He, in turn, trusted me to 
get us there. The beauty of that arrangement 
was in the simplicity of our interdepend- 
ence, as well as the potential for growth it 
presented, for Jon has been known to ago- 
nize when having to make unrehearsed deci- 
sions; and as for me, I find driving through 
unfamiliar cities terrifying. But we shared a 
passion and a goal, and as much as he needed 
a chauffeur, I needed to learn from an expert 
about a period of our history to which I 
have always felt uncannily attached. 

And teach me Jon did, leading me 
past New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, 
Washington, D.C. and Richmond, all the 
way to Petersburg, Virginia, where our first 
stop was the war's last: the earthworks. The 
famous earthworks are the miles of embank- 
ments desperately constructed by rebel sol- 
diers in a literal "last-ditch" effort to save 
themselves, their army, and their rebel coun- 
try, and surveying them felt eerily disquiet- 
ing. Although the day was placid, something 
about its peacefulness felt utterly dissonant

Cemetery at Gettysburg 

with our images of what must have occurred 
there almost 140 years earlier. 

From there, we moved on to the Crater, 
most recently famous in the opening scene 
of the movie "Cold Mountain." With the 
faint sound of cars whizzing by in the dis- 
tance, Jon and I traced the path of the 200- 
foot tunnel dug by Union soldiers to 
ambush the Confederates with explosives 
and blast an enormous crater out of the 
countryside - only to be extinguished them- 
selves as they charged the very crater they 
had worked so hard to create. 

Our next stop was Richmond — 
Museum of the Confederacy and the 
Confederate White House, home of 
Jefferson Davis. Then on to Fredericksburg, 
Virginia, site of the failed pontoon crossing 
under the stewardship of General Burnsides 
(for whom sideburns were named) and the 
eventual massacre of his troops as a result of 
his tragic strategic faux-pas — ordering his 
troops up an occupied hill. As we stood at 
the base of that hill, the words of our spirit 
mentor James B. Wiggin haunted us: "I got 
through the battle of Fredericksburg safe and 
sound and unhurt glory to god for that. I 
never was so sick of anything in my life as I 
am of the war. We are all playd out intirely 

Fredericksburg is only one corner of 
the four-battlefield area known as The 
Quadrangle. Since the 19th Massachusetts 
saw action in all four, Jon and I felt com- 
pelled to follow their footsteps to 
Chancellorsville, the Wilderness, and 
Spotsylvania. Reading from Confederates in 
the Attic, Jon directed me off the battlefield 
circuit to a side road leading to Elwood, the 
final resting place for Stonewall Jackson's 
amputated arm, as well as homestead turned 
army hospital with floorboards and ceilings 
still blotched with blood. Jon fell naturally 
into conversation with the two Elwood vol- 
unteers who, impressed with his knowledge, 
pulled out maps charting the movement of 
the 19th Massachusetts in the nearby battle- 
field. Only minutes later we were there, 
walking the perimeter, advancing as our 
friend James may have done, separated from 
history only by time. 

Having breathed and reHved the War 
relentless for the past week, we decided to 
turn northward towards Frederick, 
Maryland, where the Museum of Civil War 
Medicine awaited us. According to his 
gravestone, James B. Wiggin finished his mil- 
itary service as a medic, and as his poignant 
letters home suggested, an early bout with 
typhoid probably debilitated him to the 

Musee du Louvre, Paris, at dusk 

point where his duty was "to work in the 
hospital ... to help take care of the sick." 

No matter where we headed, the image 
of this young soldier accompanied us - from 
the Museum where we envisioned him in 
the blue wool medic's uniform, to the 
"Bloody Lane" at Antietam, site of the 
bloodiest single day of battle in the entire 
war, to the Copse of Trees on Cemetery 
Ridge in Gettysburg, where the 19th 
Massachusetts Volunteer Regiment found its 
day of glory. It was there on the third and 
last day of battle that the 19th Massachusetts 
volunteers rushed to the aid of other

But this trip was obviously more than 
just travel. It was a time for Jon and me to 
shut out the rest of the world and live in the 
space of our shared curiosity. Ironically, 
James' shortened life guided us so far back in 
history, but led us so far ahead in terms of 
our closeness. 

I remembered that closeness one day 
last December when, for some reason, I sud- 
denly found myself thinking about my own 
mortality. I mentally skimmed my "short 
list" of places I've wanted to take my chil- 
dren - Prague, Venice, Machu Picchu... 
Paris! 1 called Jon. He had taught mc so 
much about the Civil War, and I had spent 

enough months in Paris as a student to feel 
that if the city and I still belonged together, 
which we do, then certainly it would 
embrace my son. Now it was payback time, 
so in March, we landed in Paris with a 
guidebook, a map, and two sets of good 
walking shoe:;. 

For the first few days, I was in charge. I 
carefully outlined the options for explo- 
ration and let Jon choose, depending on his 
interest and stamina. Together, we invaded 
Paris neighborhood by neighborhood, from 
the stylish and refined "Old City" of the first 
"arrondissement," to the colorful and elegant 
Jewish Quarter, to the buzzing Latin 
Quarter, to the slightly seedier Montmartre. 
We lost ourselves in art and in the sociology 
of the street. We mastered the metro. We 
threw crumbs of our crepes to Parisian 

It didn't take long, however, until I 
noticed a subtle change in Jon. His deep 
appreciation of the world around him, which 
I had witnessed on our previous trip 
together, was still very niuch intact. What 
was different, though, was his seeming meta- 
morphosis out (^f his role of "dependent" 
into a stunningly self-confident Parisian 
"wannabe." The French expression "etre 
bien dans sa peau" ("feeling good in your 
skin") had suddenly come to fit him like a 
glove. Despite my best intentions of show- 
ing him my i'ans, he was showing me his.

Portrait of father and child in front of the Eiffel Tower 

And his Paris was new, and fresh, and stunning. He walked me 
up and down the little streets constituting the backdrop for the film 
Amelie, or, as Parisians have come to identify it, "le Paris d'Amelie 
PouHn." We scoured Montparnasse in search of a non-existent pho- 
tography museum yet luxuriated in photographic portraiture at the 
Fondation Henri Cartier-Bresson. We combed through the dense 
and confusing rows of tombs at the Cimetiere Pere Lachaise to pay 
homage not only to Jim Morrison, but also to Edith Piaf, Oscar 
Wilde, and Jon's newfound hero, Frederic Chopin. But not unlike 
the 19th Massachusetts at Gettysburg, Jon reached his peak under 
threat of hostility at the Place de la Sorbonne. There, the heat of 
pre-riot tensions between students and police (that sent a chill 
down my spine and a major yellow streak down my back) put a grin 
on his face as he jogged into the melee, his camera to his eye. 
Indeed, watching him frame each of the 500 pictures he took 
throughout our week together shed new light on this, my son, and 
his unique, evolving view of the- world. 

Yes, this trip, too, was obviously more than just travel. Once 
again, it was a time for us to shut out the rest of the world and live, 
as before, in the space of our shared curiosity. But this time, as I 
walk along the Seine next to an engaged, utterly comfortable and 
even exhilarated young man, I am suddenly aware that time is pass- 
ing, the excited but slightly nervous boy who had sat next to me on 
the plane to Paris nearly a week earlier was evolving before my very 
eyes. Poor Mrs. Wiggin never had that luxury. 

I still fully intend to take my kids to Paris, to Prague, to Venice 
and Machu Picchu, along with any other wonderful place that hap- 
pens to turn up on my "short list." Yet at times I wonder if my chil- 
dren may outgrow me and be off on their own before I can make 
my dreams for us come true. And that is why - whether on a 1600- 
mile adventure south, a week-long trip to Paris, or even a two-mile 
drive to Triton Middle School and back on a jam-packed morning 
— I am so very grateful for any gift of time together, i

Project RISE student 
Dayzel Love 

By Advienne Berry-Burton 

Project RISE was created by Rob Dixon at Tliayer Acadetny 
Braintree in 1993 as a summer day program to give midd 
school students of promise an educational advantage as they pL 
for high school. As the website explain 
today Project RISE is committed to increasing the enrollment 
competent African American and Latino /Hispanic students in. 
the private school sector The overall goal of the program is . 
improve self esteem and academic motivation, which will enlnvh 
aspirations for achievement, educationally, socially and cultunill 
Last year, Dixon approached Isaiah Suggs about expand ii 
Project RISE to The Governor's Academy and making it a re. 
idential program. The idea became reality in summer 2006. \ 

The 24 young rising seventh, eighth and ninth grade:! 
arrived at The Governor's Academy on Monday, July 10, 200(| 
None had ever stayed overnight with anyone who wasn't famil 
Their parents entered the room with caution. AH of these atter 
tive parents had been convinced by the Academy's friend an 
tutor Howard Sticklor and Associate Director of Admission Isaia 
Suggs '78 that what their children were about to begin would t 
a great opportunity and a great experience. They each decide j 
that they were willing to bravely risk trusting their children wit 
strangers. Each student and each parent beHeved what M 
Sticklor and Mr. Suggs had told them - that this three-week edi 
cational experience would be a beneficial part of building 
stronger academic foundation. 

We, the staff of Project RISE (Respect, Integrity an 
Success through Education), were being trusted with these pai 
ents' precious children. We took on that responsibility wit 
absolute confidence. We became partners that evening with eac 
other, the children and their parents in building that strongt 
foundation. j 

From July 10th to July 28th, Monday through Thursda 
through some of the hottest days of the summer, the staff and stt 
dents of Project RISE spent the mornings in class, the afternooi 
in enrichment activities, and the evenings in study hall. Th 
mornings and evenings were intense, full of new informatioi 
questions, discussions, homework assignments, tutorial session 
reading, tests, photography, reports, PowerPoint lessons, interne 
research, group projects and laughter. Raymond Long '96, a

Academy Bestows Diplomas to Vets... 

Some 60 Years Later 

World War II changed the 
lives of many young men still in 
high school. Duty called them 
away from their studies to the mil- 
itary action in Europe and the 
Pacific. At the Academy, several 
students left the bucolic rural set- 
ting where they were preparing 
for college before they received 
their diplomas. 

When Headmaster John M. 
Doggett Jr. learned that there were 
veterans who had never received 
diplomas, he became committed 
to righting the situation. "I felt 
that was an oversight that certainly 
needed to be remedied," he said. 
"These are people who served our 
country in a noble fashion," 
Doggett said. Some had actually 
applied for readmission to the 
Academy after returning from the service 
but were denied. The headmaster believes 
the school officials at the time feared the 
considerably older and more worldly vets 
might not be the best peers for the young 
and innocent students on campus. Some of 
the vets went back to their pubhc high 
schools or another prep school or straight to 

On Memorial Day, May 29, 2006, six 
former students of the Academy belatedly 
received their diplomas from Governor 
Dummer Academy at a ceremony in the 
school's Moseley Chapel at 12 noon. John 
R. Whitney of Walpole, MA, and Gordon J. 
Hoyt of Queensbury, NY, received their 
diplomas in person while Wallace L. Bolton 
of Palm Beach, FL, David W Barnard of 
Holden, MA, William A. Barrell of West 
Boxford, MA, and Homer Ambrose of Falls 
Church, VA, were honored in absentia. 

While the lack of an Academy diploma 
hardly held these men back from the consid- 
erable achievements in their lives, receiving

Headmaster John M. Doggett 

the status of alumnus 60 years later still felt 

"I was completely overcome when I got 
out of the car," recalls John Whitney. "I felt 
like Willy the Post. I was so pleased to be 
honored; it was terrific. It was great to 
reunite with old friends." Seeing today's stu- 
dents also pleased him, though he noted the 
difference between his era and theirs. "I was 
delighted to see the students; however, we 
had a much stricter dress code when I was in 
school," he remarked. 

Whitney, GDA Class of 1944, was 
inducted into the service in June, 1943. He 
served in the 136-gun battalion as an anti- 
aircraft radar operator. His three years of 
service took him throughout Europe to 
Antwerp, Belgium, England, Harr, Germany, 
and France. In Germany, he served as a 
member of the United States Occupation 
Division, utilizing a hospital x-ray room as a 
dark room to chronicle photographically the 
medical progress of those who survived the 
concentration camp at Auschw^itz. After his 

service in WWII, Whitney 
spent three years as a dairy 
farmer in Vermont before 
going to work for the family 
business, John R. Whitney 
and Company. He still oper- 
ates the company and resides 
in Walpole, MA with his wife 
Katherine. His son. Randy 
Whitney, is a graduate of 
GDA's Class of 1970; his 
granddaughter Catherine 
graduated in 2001 and his 
grandson Alexander in 2005. 
Gordon Hoyt was 
equally pleased. "I was very 
happy to return to campus," 
he says. "The media attention 
was overwhelming. Weeks 
after the event, family and 
friends were sending me cut 
outs of the story that ran in the Globe and 
other papers; I was flattered that so many 
people cared." Gordon also remarked about 
today's students. "The students seem to get 
younger every year; I am envious. Gosh, 
they look so young. 

They looked like an excellent cross sec- 
tion of young people." 

Hoyt, GDA Class of 1945, was inducted 
into the U.S. Army in March of his junior 
year at the Academy. He began as a member 
of the Army Air Corps and completed his

service in 1946 with the rank of Private First Class. After his miHtary 
service, he earned a Bachelor's degree from Bowdoin CoUege. Since 
college graduation, Hoyt has worked in the insurance business, cur- 
rently serving as Chairman of Hermitage Insurance Company. He 
resides in Queensbury, New York, with his wife Cynthia. They have 
two grown children. 

Homer Ambrose couldn't make the trip but expressed his pleas- 
ure at the recognition. "I am deeply honored to receive a diploma. 
It's hanging on the wall of my ofiBce," he said. I'm just extremely 
honored to be remembered 
by the Academy." 

Homer was forced to 
leave GDA after his junior 
year in 1946 because his 
father, a captain in the United 
States Navy, was transferred 
from the Portsmouth Navy 
Yard to the Navy Department 
in Washington, DC. He 
(Homer) spent 20 years of 
commissioned service in the 
U.S. Army Corps of 
Engineers. He is a veteran of 
the Korean War, Vietnam War 
and Cold War, retiring in 
1971 as a Lieutenant Colonel. 
He earned a B.S. in Civil 
Engineering from Virginia 
MiHtary Institute, an M.S. in 
Civil Engineering from Iowa 
State University, and a Ph.D. 
in Engineering Management 
from the California Coast 
University. He is also a gradu- 
ate of the U.S. Army 
Command and General Staff 
College. Ambrose currently 
resides in Falls Church, VA, 
with his wife Elizabeth. They 
have two grown children. 

Wally Bolton offered an 
understatement when asked 
for a reaction to the belated 
diploma. "I'd say it took a lit- 
tle while," he said. Wally, a 
member of the Class of 1944, 
was inducted into the service 
in October, 1943 and served in 
Normandy, France, the 
Rhineland, the Ardennes, and 
Central Europe. He was a gun 
crewman and a gunner in an 

artillery battery of Patton's Third Army His battalion was the first to 
arrive at St. Lo, France. At war's end, he was stationed in Linn, 
Austria. Following the war, he attended Brown University and 
uated with a B.A. in 1950. After graduation, he worked in his fam- 
ily's business, Bolton-Emerson, Inc., in Lawrence, MA. I Ic (uniMitly

Dave Barnard, Class of 1945, volunteered for the service in fall 
of 1944. He served in the United States Army from 1944 to 1946, as 
a member of the 5th Army in Italy during the PO VaUey/North 
Apennine Campaign. Dave who currently resides in Holden, MA 
was honorably discharged in 1946 and is the owner of Barnard Real 
Estate. He previously served as chairman of the Worcester Industrial 
Development Financing Authority and the City of Worcester Rent 

Review Board. He and his wife 
Susan have four grown children. 
When he was notified of 
the Academy's plans, William 
"Bill" Barrell, felt honored. "I 
was grateful. After 60 some years, 
I was very grateful," he said. "I 
love the school and would sup- 
port it until the day I die. There 
were great people, teachers and 
camaraderie," he recalled. A 
member of the Class of 1945, 
Bill left GDA during his junior 
year to serve in WWII. In 
February 1944, he was assigned 
to the 95th Infantry Division. 
His unit arrived in Europe on 
August 17, 1944 and engaged 
with enemy forces in northern 
France, the Rhineland and 
Central Europe. On November, 
20, 1944, he was wounded in 
action and was subsequently 
awarded a Purple Heart and 
Bronze Star. After recovering 
from his injury, he was promoted 
to the rank of Staff Sergeant, 
returning to action and later 
receiving a Good Conduct 
Medal and World War II Victory 
Medal. Upon discharge in June

School of Accounting and went

1 talk 


By Dane Lemberger '07 

Someone once said "Life is a journey, 
not a destination." Indeed, every day is a 
new adventure and every moment is epic. 
Throughout my seventeen-year existence, 
I've been blessed with wonderful family and 
friends, not to mention an outlook on life 
that even amazes me at times. Yet no one 
ever said life was easy - we face an over- 
whelming chaos of expectation, confusion, 
love, hate, and everything in between. 

As a philosopher, I've always debated 
the meaning of life and why I was placed on 
Earth. Sometimes, I feel empowered to rush 
towards my destiny. At other times, though, I 
find it almost impossible to gather up the 
strength to continue. Does life reaUy matter? 
Of course it does, but we've been known to 
take it way too seriously. There's been many 
a day when I disappear from this mortal 
realm and ascend into the world of dreams: 
wondering how a collection of organic mol- 
ecules can assemble into a sentient, miracu- 
lous creature capable of absolutely anything 
he sets his mind to. If most of us don't even 
know the secret of life, are we taking it for 
granted? Is focusing on hterary analysis, 
impHcit differentiation, and poetic meter 
really as important as my teachers say it is? 
Nonetheless, I've always loved to learn, and 
my times have been filled with awards and 
recognition for the way I apply my intellect. 
A great thing, but learning isn't my top pas- 
sion in life. 

Ever since I was a little boy, my heart has 
yearned to reach out to new people and help 
them in any way I could. Kindness is a price- 
less treasure; love conquers all. I am Com 
apart by conflict, and nearly driven to tears 
by many of the hardships every human being 
must endure. But how am I to fight against 
fighting? Shyness and fear of others' opinions 
have silenced me for too long. I have finally 
embraced the potential within nic. My soul 
is unlocked through love. There is nothing as 

beautiful as ^viping away the tears of a 
beloved one, giving a kiss and a hug and a 
smile. My only wish is for all hatred to be 
completely eradicated from this world. I \vill 
stop at nothing to satisfy this goal before my 
mind embraces the afterlife. I am the 
guardian of humanity: my brother's keeper, 
protector of the innocent and destroyer of 
evil. If only there were more hours in the 
day, more years in my being - then maybe I 
would be able to perform my duty. I'm not 
the only one - there is power in numbers, 
and I rejoice in the sacred bond of trust 
between two people that Ave call friendship. 

Many have said that I have the golden 
touch. Looking out at all of you, I disagree: 
I'm not the miracle worker. My friends, you 
are the ones with incredible talent, motiva- 
tion, and powerful minds. I wouldn't be 
where I am today without you.Your encour- 
agement has sent me soaring. You have made 
yourselves my allies from the first time you 
met me. And it's about time that I stand up 
for you. 

The challenges of modern life can eas- 
ily overwhelm anyone who isn't ready. So 
I'm going to share my philosophy on life 
with you, in hope that I will reenergize your 
mind, pacify your souls, and prepare you for 
the journey ahead. 

First of all, never give up. A true cham- 
pion is one who sets a goal and never loses 
sight of it. Everyone makes mistakes; there's 
no reason to cry over spilled milk. 

Have mental toughness and speed, and 
never be afraid to think something over. 
Don't let negative remarks slow you down, 
and do all that you cm. it's perfectly normal 
to be unsure; it's above average to carefully 
think about your actions more than you have 
to. Think about who .uui what will he 
affected, and if the risk will be worth ii m 
the end. Value otiuTs" lut's, hapiimess, .uui 
well-hcmii; as highly as you value yours. 

More often than not, you get what you 
deserve; be friendly, and others will reply in 
turn. There's no advantage to being mean. 

Live, and let live. If there's no reason to 
interfere when you shouldn't or don't have 
to, ignore the situation. There can be a fine 
line between minding your ow^n business 
and deciding that you have to jump in; make 
the right choice, and others will think highly 
of you. Even though you control your life 
completely, interaction with others isn't 
worthless at all, and can mean the difference 
between success and failure (especially in the 
world of business). 

Have fun. Without joy, this world would 
be a monotonous and dark place where 
nothing would be accomplished. Have a 
good sense of humor. Take things seriously 
only when you feel it is necessary. Realize 
that no one is perfect; mistakes are made, and 
approaching them with a smile is the right 
way to go. 

Be kind. There is nothing in this world 
as powerful as kindness. Not only does it feel 
incredible, you'll make so many friends, savor 
so many moments, and never regret a thing. 
Respect is the right attitude to have towarcis 
the world. 

And, most importantly of all, believe in 
yourself, and there's nothing you can't do. 
Unlock the power widiin, and you'll go far- 
ther than your wildest dreams. 

Think of these things whenever you 
feel troubled. Never be afraid to ask for help: 
there's always someone there to lend a hand, 
no matter what. I know I'll be there for all of 

And with that, I leave you to go back to 
your world, hoping that I've made a differ- 
ence in this community. Whether 1 see you 
every day, every couple of weeks, or just pass 
by now and then, I respect ami salute every- 
oiK' here. May our paths cross again .someday.

it was mistakenly written that George L. 
Boynton '56 received a Master's degree 
from Columbia University. In fact, it was 
his brother Peter who did, though both 
brothers earned Bachelor's degrees from 
Stanford. George's children's names were 
listed as Carly and Lynda; they should 
have been listed as Carly and Lindy. The 
editor apologizes for the errors.

NNUAL Report 2006 



Jeffrey L. Gordon '69, Trustee President 

This Annual Report marks two monumental events at 
The Governor's Academy: Dan Morgan's retirement after a 
ten-year term as President of the Board of Trustees and the 
successful conclusion of the largest capital campaign in the 
Academy's history. Both are intertwined, of course, because 
our recent 50 million dollar campaign had its roots in the 
strategic vision for our school that Dan and the Board of 
Trustees worked so hard to develop with Headmasters 
Bragdon and Doggett over the last decade. Every item on 
the campaign list requiring funding was researched and 
reviewed countless times to insure its priority status and its 
essential contribution to the Academy's mission. 

As our school family well knows by now, these critical 
focal points of the campaign included faculty compensation, 
scholarship aid, three new major buildings, vast improve- 
ments in technology on campus, new faculty housing units, 
new athletic fields, and funds to increase our endowment. 
Each one of these elements of our long range plan came 
about because of a determined effort by Dan to incorporate 
strategic planning as part of his continuing agenda as Board 
President. Seeing the plan through to completion is enor- 
mously rewarding, and much of the credit of the campaign's 
success rests fully with Dan. 

Having said that this mission was accomplished, please 
do not think for a moment that this Board of Trustees and 
Headmaster have any intention to rest on past laurels. 
Change, progress, and innovation are part of the lexicon of 
our school and are an absolute necessity for us to have 
remained so vital 243 years into our long history. The 
Independent School League, of which The Governor's 
Academy is a proud member, is a very competitive environ- 
ment, and we must constantly strive to stay ahead of the 
curve to succeed in our stated goal to be one of the finest 
small boarding schools in the country. To borrow a line from 
the Academy's new view book that was recently published 
for our prospective applicants: "The competition is fierce at 
the ISL schools. So are we." Our best days may still be 
ahead, of us. 


Jeff Gordon '69, Trustee President

The story of this year's fundiciiyiliy dbcomplishments," 
which you will find in the following pages, includes the 
achievement of two important goals - the successful com- 
pletion of our $50M capital campaign and a new high in 
our Annual Fund. 

Our recently completed Capital Campaign, "To Carry on the 
Work", provided resources critical to upgrade both our 
facilities and our programs. If you have visited campus 
recently, then you have seen first-hand the growth that 
was fueled by our contributions to the Campaign including 
a new Performing Arts Center, the Pescosolido Library, the 
Schumann Math and Science Center, enhanced athletic 
facilities, increased financial aid and improvements in fac- 
ulty compensation. On behalf of the Board of Trustees, 
we extend sincere thanks to everyone who supported this 

Thanks to the generosity of those who cherish the 
Academy, the 2005-2006 Annual Fund enjoyed a record- 
setting year and exceeded our goal of $1.3M. This is just 
one more example of the way our alumni, parents and 
friends are working to ensure our future. The Annual 
Fund has a direct and immediate impact on the day to day 
lives of the students and faculty who live, learn, work and 
play here at the Academy. 

Finally, we extend sincere thanks to all of our volunteers," 
including our 70 Class Agents, 50 Parent Volunteers and 
the Board of Trustees, who worked so diligently to encour- 
age classmates, colleagues and friends to increase their 
financial support this past fiscal year. We could not have 
achieved our goal without their help. 

The 2006-2007 fiscal year is well underway and we 
respectfully ask, once again, for your ongoing support of 
The Governor's Academy Annual Fund. 

Gratefully yours, 

Chris Beebe '55

As Jeff Gordon^hands -off the 
easurer'^^Ppife and assumes 
is new role as President of the Board 
■ Trustees, we can all see the tremen-, 
. E)us imprint that Dan Morgan and 
- the Trustees have had on the financial 
health of the school. The largest Capital Campaign in the his- 
tory of the school recently ended successfully. The Academy's 
endowment completed the fiscal year at the highest level in 

A 1 T-i J _ _1 • J ii_ 1__ J _-i_ J 

goals, exceeded the prior year's performance and also set an 

all-time record. Indeed, another fiscal year has ended with a 


the economic world. 

As we look towards the coming months, it is exciting news 
that the Board has authorized the construction of a new dor- 
mitory with faculty housing, a new hockey rink and a turf 
playing field. These initiatives are incremental to the 
achieved goals of the Capital Campaign and made possible 
through the long-range strategic planning initiatives champi- 
oned by Dan and implemented by the Academy's administra- 
tion. At The Governor's Academy, financial planning and 
long-range strategic planning clearly have been elegantly 
intertwined by the^^^^^^^ vision of Jeff and Dan. 

My daughter Ariel is now in her second year of study at ": 
Governor's Academy. I am gratified that her school, in^ 
ues, philosophy and missio^l^^Spiuch the same instil 
tion that I graduated from in 1974. New buildings and facili- 
ties abound, curriculum choices are broad, students and fac- 
ulty share technology I could barely imagine in the '70s, but 
the school remains an institution dedicated to the moral, 
intellectual, artistic and athletic development of young peo- 
ple. At The Governor's Academy, it is veryl^tt^we are 
traditional yet progressive- , respectful of the past, yet on the 
cutting edge of the future. Clearly„^^^ft^tion that has 
not only survived, but truly thrived for more than 240 years is 
doing more than a few things right. ^ ' 

I am honored and humbled to serve as the school's new 
Treasurer. I look forward to the challenges that lie ahead as 
the school continues to evolve and flourish while preserving 
its core mission and values.

Outright GifU 

Donors may transfer cash and other assets directly to the Academy for 
immediate use in funding any of the needs of the Campaign or the Annual Fund. 
Such gifts can be made by check or in the form of securities, real estate, or gifts- 
in-kind (antiques, art, jewelry, coin collection). Gifts may qualify as a charitable 
deduction, as allowed by law. 

Pledges are encouraged for up to three years but may extend over a period 
of five years. Gift payments may be made in convenient installments. 

Life Income GiftA 

In making a significant gift to The Governor's Academy, you may commit 
to the gift now but delay the Academy's possession and use of the gift until 
your death or that of the final beneficiary. Charitable Remainder Unitrusts 
and Charitable Annuity Trusts offer the satisfaction of making a gift to The 
Governor's Academy while retaining income from the principal for your person- 
al use. These irrevocable trusts qualify for special tax consideration. 

Corporate Match GiftA 

As a donor, you may be able to increase your support for The Governor's 
Academy by taking advantage of your spouse's or your employer's matching gift 

Naming The Governor's Academy as the pri- 
mary beneficiary of a life insurance policy is 
another giving option. This enables the donor to 
retain ownership of the policy and have access to 
the policy's cash value. This type of gift can reduce 
your estate tax liability. 

Should you wish a more immediate tax bene- 
fit, you may name The Governor's Academy as the 
owner of the policy. This becomes an irrevocable 
assignment of all rights in the insurance policy to 
The Academy. You are allowed an immediate feder- 
al income tax charitable deduction. 

Charitable Lead TruAt 

ReMdence or Farm 

This type of trust provides for a gift of pay- 
ments from the trust property to The Governor's 
Academy for a term of years, after which the prop- 
erty reverts to you or passes to a non-charitable 
beneficiary designated by you. The charitable lead 
trust, depending upon the manner in which it is 
structured, can significantly reduce or even elimi- 
nate either the gift or estate tax. 

Donors may give a personal residence or farm to The Governor's Academy while retaining the right to 
occupy the residence or operate the farm. This type of gift provides an income-tax charitable deduction that 
frees up tax dollars into spendable income without causing any disruption to your lifestyle. It also permits 
you to escape any potential capital-gain tax on the built-in appreciation. 

A single-family dwelling, condominium, vacation home, or stock owned by you as a tenant stockhold- 
er in a cooperative housing corporation qualifies as a personal residence if used each year by you. 


Gifts by bequest will build the school's endowment and provide a stream of operating income to The 
Governor's Academy in future years. Charitable bequests may specify a dollar amount or a percentage of 
your residual estate. In each case, the amount of the gift is excluded from the valuation of your estate for 
estate tax or inheritance tax purposes. 

For more information about giving opportunities, please call the Development Office at 
(978) 499-3173 or consult the website at

Bill Ferris '38 reports: "In April, my 
wife Mary and I went to San Louis Inn in 
Anila, CA to celebrate our 62nd wedding 
anniversary. "We were joined by our son Bob 
and his wife Carlene. In May, we went to 
DavidsonviUe, MD for our granddaughter 
Kelly's high school graduation; while there, 
my wife celebrated her 85th birthday. It was 
quite a day. In the morning, my daughter 
Mary had to put her dog to sleep. Very trau- 
matic. We went to bed at 11:30; at 12:30 our 
grandson Patrick came down and told us to 
get up - the house was on fire. Fortunately, 
no one was hurt." John Gannett '39 says: 
"Started to get old this past winter. This 
summer it shows. Friends from Florida 
camping in yard. They have helped repair 
seven storage doors, plus assisting in moving 
10 tons of 85th rails for the Maine Narrow 
Gage R.R. All of family well and busy." 

John Klotz reports: "Received brochure 
about new name, very expensive, could have 
been less costly, but well done. Hope it is 
very helpful in recruiting students. Hope 
Marty Doggett is now well. School is now 
orientated to 10 + 25-year-old graduates 
which is as it should be. They have the 
money. Messers Mercer, Jennings, Kirky, 
Fames sure helped me but electronics is now 
the best. As my children say: 'Dad you are 
before the flood. Life has passed you by' 
Goodbye, good luck and God bless you." 

Bob Schumann '40 reports: "This 
summer, Marilyn and I celebrated our 85th 
and our 30th wedding anniversary ( a second 
marriage for both) at our permanent resi- 
dence in Madison, CT on the Sound with 
our growing family, including sons Ford '66 
and David '74, and stepson Judah Thissell 
'03. Also had a great remembrance dinner 
with Fred Lyle, Bob's son, Tim Tenney '69, 
and his dad, Tom Tenney '39. Tom, who has 
a place in Fenwick, CT, and I had a great 
time reminiscing about our days at GDA 

Robert '40 and Joanne Goodspeed 

(now GA). Talked recently to Bob Lyle '40 
who has had more that his share of problems 
with a hip replacement. He's a fighter and is 
recovering slowly but surely. Lewis 
narrower '41 says, "I moved back to up- 
state NY from Florida two years ago to be 
closer to my family. My health is not the 
best. I am legally blind so I am in assisted 
living. I have one daughter and son-in-law 
that have three children and I became a great 
grandfather one year ago." John English 
'28 says, "The only exciting thing I have to 
report is that I am alive and well. I enjoy 
Cape Cod. I live comfortably and well in a 
beautifuUy run retirement condo. 1 drive lo- 
cally. And I have just enough good sense left 
to not press my 96 years with serious travel 
and activities Hke that. I do miss, however, 
things like getting back to the Academy once 
in a while." 

Al Hutchinson '40 says, "A litde note 
from the Hutchinsons. We went on a very 
interesting trip with the Elderhostel group 
to Newfoundland and Labrador in June. It 
was different from any other trip we've tak- 
en. We stayed at Hawkes Bay on the south- 
west side of Newfoundland, not too far from 
where the St. Lawrence River goes into the 
north Atlantic. We had two speakers from 
the Torrent Motel who told us the history of 
Newfoundland and the problems of the fish- 
ing industry. We visited old Viking sites, and 
in Labrador saw where the Basque fishermen 
from France and Spain caught many whales 
and used their oil for hghting in their coun- 
tries, and blubber for many reasons. The 
whole trip was very educational and, if you 
don't like crowds, that's the place to go. In 
August, we went to our 62nd reunion from 
the University of Maine in Owls Head, 
Maine. We saw Pete Farnham who also 
graduated in 1940." 

Robert Goodspeed says: "My business 
with the Shearling Tannery in China contin- 
ues to grow. This year over 50 million dol- 
lars in sales. My biggest account is UGGS, 
the women's winter boot manufacturer (also 
in China). We'U return to Florida after 
Thanksgiving. My office there is on Singer 
Island." Pete Hill '41 reports: "1 am the 
proud dad of six lovely kids - five of mine 
and one of my dear wife Dorothy. They are 
growing up very well. Our eldest is 60, our 
young 'un 50. They are all doing weU and 
have produced 10 grandkids. Six out of col- 
lege and three in. I spent 31 years in the Air 
Force and have done a lot of various jobs 
since retiring permanently 14 years ago. I 
have lived in Florida since 1973 and am still 
enjoying golf, swimming (every morning) 
and social or semi-social activities in large 
numbers. Dorothy and I have been married 
nearly 28 years. Both of our previous part- 
ners have long departed this life."

tor cruiser. Still get out sailing and hiking, 
but more often walking with Pat who can-

Hill who writes: "We are still living in 
Maine and plan to for the duration. Keeping 
busy volunteering in local hospital and 
Maine Maritime Museum. Also spend time 
at cottage in Popham Beach at the mouth of

The news will be short only because 
there hasn't been a noticeable increase in the 
return cards. Widge Thomas has been 
sharing surgeons with wife Jonnie, and they 
have matching chest scars. If that isn't to- 
getherness, I don't know what is. He seems 
to be enjoying a quieter pace and is helping 
Peter Bragdon while he rests. Ben Mann 
has been giving the docs some work and is 
in the recovery stage. We wish him well. 
Medicare seems to be a popular program 
with us octogenarians. Walt McGill is stiU 
laboring as our bill collector. He laments the 
fact that we '43s used to be among the top 
in the participation index and have recently 
slipped. Before he gets discouraged and 
quits, we had better get going. Remember, 
you might be the next class agent! Bob 
Morrell is one of the few that is still feeding 
the Social Security fund. He claims to have 
a grand graduating from college. We can't 
possibly be that old. I'U be joining him next 
spring when our Hannah graduates from 
UMass. Bob Wadleigh is dividing his time 
between NE and Costa Rica. He can't fig- 
ure out why he is called grandfather when 
he's only 39. If you figure it out, there were 
five replies to the news appeal out of 40 pos- 
sible. I, for one, really would like to know 
what you other thirty-odd are doing. The 
Brewsters have taken a year ofi'from med- 
ical matters and feel good about it. A bit of 
boating, a bit of travel, a bit of volunteering 
seem to keep us going well.

Headline in the Boston Globe: 
'Governor Dummer awards diplomas to Six 

WWII veterans." 

Pinky Whitney remarked in one of the 
cards I got late last year that he was stiU put 
out by the fact that Ted Eames had refused to 
let him back into GDA after his service in 
WWII, so he got no diploma from GDA. I 
wrote Sandy Keyes at GDA and suggested 
that this was an opportunity for GDA to 
right a wrong and that there might be oth- 
ers who had left to go to war without fin- 
ishing the school year. The school picked up 
on the idea and on May 29th Gordon Hoyt 
and Pinky were awarded diplomas at a cere- 
mony at the Academy. Bill Barrell '45, 
Homer Ambrose '47, Wally Bolton '44, 
and Dave Barnard '45 also received diplo- 
mas, though not at the ceremony. Pinky 
wrote me a nice note saying how touched he 
and the others were by "all the • attention." 
Pinky has moved to 180 Main St. Apt. D-146 
inWalpole, MA 02081. 

By the way, a great place on the Internet 
to look for people you have lost track of is: And also, did you 
know people at CERN, the Swiss nuclear 
research facility in Geneva, invented the 

Pinky also noted that masters at GDA 
helped him along his "stumbling" way. He 
mentioned "Mac" Murphy and Howard J. 
Navins '31 [He did not call him "Buster"]; 
the latter taught him to throw and catch a 
baseball and gave him the name "Pinky." He 
says, "For someone who could hardly read 
and write with no appetite for sports — I was 
very lucky to fare as well as I have!!" 

Gordon Hoyt wrote that when he and 
Pinky were at the ceremony, it was the first 
time he knew Pinky 's name was John. "Nice 
ceremony... well publicized. Things looked 
good at school- nice bunch of kids. I do be- 
lieve they are far brighter than those of our 
generation." "Nick" Martin says all is well 
with the Martin clan. Five children, aU mar- 
ried, with ten grandchildren. "Nick" is still 
working at, I think he wrote, Martco, which 
he founded in 1961. He still plays tennis 
three or four times a week and says, "Life is 
great!!" [My recollection of Nick is that he 
was thin. I guess he has stayed that way. I was 
fat, got thin in the Navy, and am again over- 
weight.]. Jim Waugh mentioned the "nice"

lots of gardening, though it has been a hot 
summer in Tulsa, OK with temperature in 
the 100s. He reports: "I'm cured of my 
bladder cancer. I'm a volunteer at a 
Redemption prison ministry which meets 
every Sunday evening for prayer and a meal 
and classes to help the inmates when they are 
released. They come from three local pre-re- 
lease units in the Tulsa area." 

Sam Finley says that three years after 
his first wife died he now has a wonderful 
new wife he married on June 24th. It has 
been "a full time honeymoon" moving his 
new wife and some of her stuff into his re- 
tirement community apartment and selling 
her home. He is still in perfect health and ac- 
tive; going traveling this fall. Jack Wellman 
says, "Just shot my age this past week on a 
great golf course in a tournament - no 
gimme's - 81 - hope to do more." Hall 
Cushman, living in Santa Rosa, CA after a 
move from Vermont says he hasn't stayed in 
touch with GDA as his years there seem too 
removed from his life. He is happily busy in 
retirement with his wife in a Quaker retire- 
ment community - Friends House - with 
three sons nearby. He's on the brink of his 
56th anniversary and 80th birthday - healthy 
and happy and trying to adjust to the aging

In recognition of my contribution to that ef- 
fort a mountain in West Antarctica was 
named after me. Mount Kauffman, Latitude 
75.35S, Longitude 132.20W. Another piece 
of trivia is that one day, while I was at South 
Pole Station (Amundsen Scott Station), "for 
no good reason," as Forrest Gump would say, 
I climbed alone to the top of a 180-foot- 
high forward scatter radio tower. For ten 
minutes, I was the southern most man in the 
world! The temperature was ten degrees be- 
low zero and the ice underfoot was 3,600 
feet thick with two feet of fine powder. I 
took a picture from the tower and one can 
see my shadow at the top. Another photo is 
attached; me at the VIP pole.The most recent 
picture I have seen taken a few years ago 
shows only the globe is visible as blowing 
snow has raised the snow surface. 

John Whitney says, "There is very lit- 
tle I can add after our wonderful day at the 
Academy! 1 give you full credit for writing 
Headmaster John M. Doggett Jr. with the 
suggestion of presenting the few WWII 
Veterans, with war diplomas! The rico- 
cheted reaction that I have personally re- 
ceived was beyond my imagination. I'm still 
being spotted as. ..I saw you on TV or in the 
paper! Just goes to show I went to the right 
school after all!!!!."

been an unusually busy and different type of 
year for me and Sue... as you may know, 
Governor Dummer Academy awarded me 
and five other World War Two veterans belat- 
ed diplomas... it was a very nice honor for 
me... and also another recognition this year, 
Bates College has presented me with an 
honorary membership to the Class of 1961 
(Sue's Class)... On a more personal side of 
things, this last month I have had a small can- 
cerous tumor removed from a vocal cord and 
have since received a very encouraging prog- 
nosis... And, last but not least, we have our 
seasonal property in Maine on the market 
which will give us more time to do a variety 
of planned things... P.S. Because of the GDA 
diploma I was quoted in the Boston Globe." 
Bill Barrell says, "Since the name change is 
deemed so all important in enrolling more 
students from out of the area, I would wish 
the Academy would keep the Alumni in-

Warren Furth reports: "In June we cele-

only ones from our class of '46. Hope more 
from our class will attend next one." 

I, John Kimball, would like to say that 
I do not presume to take the place in this 
"office" of class secretary of old friend, 
George Duffy. Let's just say I'm sitting in. 
I know we all thank Duff for representing us 
for all these 60 years, and we wish him the 
very best. We certainly are in an era of 
change with the really big one: The 
Governor's Academy (TGA anyone?). I con- 
cur with Lyndy 's, we need names for that re- 
union Old Guard group photo; it was a spe- 
cial occasion photo-op.

60th Class Reunion 

June 8, 9, 10, 2007 

I'm sure my classmates join me 
in thanking Homer Ambrose (ham- for his "stint in the bar- 
rel" as our Class Secretary over the past years. 
We appreciate your time and effort, 'Homes', 
in keeping our class up to date with one an- 
other. Homes was one of six GDA grads 
who, because of family or personal commit- 
ments to the WW II effort, left the academy 
prior to their graduation and were presented 
with their long overdue diplomas last May. 
It was a real pleasure for Jack Deering and 
me to represent Homes at the presentation 

Homer Ambrose '47 with his diploma 

ceremony which in- 
cluded a Memorial Day 
Service as well. 
Homes's diploma is one 
of the last to be in- 
scribed, "Governor 
Dummer Academy" be- 
cause of the name 
to "The Governor's 
Academy" in July. 
Congratulations, Homes, 
on all counts. 

A phone conversa- 
tion with Plato Kangis 

revealed a hidden talent 
to me. Plato lives in 
Providence, RI with his 
wife, Gwenette. They 
are partners in their upscale, handcrafted 
leather handbag business. Plato was selected 
as one of the August 2006 BEST OF 
RHODE ISLAND winners (an annual fea- 
ture of Rhode Island Magazine) in this cate- 
gory. These exquisite bags (prices soar into 
the thousands) are made of ostrich and alli- 
gator, in many styles and colors. As the arti- 
cle above states, "Kangis's masterpieces, with 
names like Cortina, Rio and San Remo, take 
our breath away." Congratulations, Plato. 
This may give our guys an idea for their 
wives' Christmas presents!

Jim Knott ( 
has, for over 40 years, been inventing, devel- 
oping and manufacturing vinyl coated wire 
and mesh for many types of fencing applica- 
tions. In 1957, he began tinkering with 'lob- 
stah' traps, which for generations were made 
from bent oak and slats. Thanks to Jim and 
his Riverdale Mills Corps, this wooden trap 
may now only be seen as a coffee table in 
many family-rooms but you won't find many 
in Maine or New England waters, or the 
country's for that matter. Lobstermen 
worldwide are delighted with Jim's vinyl- 
coated wire trap, so much so that this spring 
the University of Maine, Orono, conferred 
on Jim a degree of Honorary Doctor of 
Science. In response to a congratulatory 
email I sent him, Jim replied, "Ted Eames 
would have been as astonished as I was when 
I got this news!" Great work, Jim, and a 
well-deserved honor. Those of you who 
read the Boston Globe may have seen some 
of his daughter's work. Janet Knott is a staff 

When I phoned Sam Allen, he said he 
has been a retired attorney for 1 1 years now. 
Unfortunately, for the past ten years, Sam has 
been on crutches due to spinal stenosis. 
However, he still goes to Florida for the 
month of March ... no doubt on doctor's 
orders for the 'heat treatments' available on 
the warm beaches. Sam also said he knew 
my nephew Jack who lived about a mile 
away. Small world. Bill Bailey (rebai- says he still finds time to 
play a little hockey with Dan Hall. Don't 
you guys ever slow down? I had a brief chat 
with Gorty Baldwin ( in 
May. All seems well on the home front 
there. When I mentioned the humor of his 
wife's name, Sara Lee, he said his mother's 
name is also Sara Lee and his daughter's 
mother-in-law is named Betty Crocker. 
Wow! What a sweet family you have, Gorty! 
Now, if I could only convince you not to 
delete my emails before opening them!! 
Peter Bellamy ( 
sounded great on the phone. He was plan- 
ning to attend his 55th reunion at Hamilton 
College. At the time I called, Pete was en- 
grossed in aligning new drawer puUs . . . per- 
fectly. To assure future tranquility, I suggest- 
ed he have his wife, Marianne, approve the 
locations before drilling any holes! Ben 
Birdsall stiU lives in the same house in 
Kingston, NH, but the PO changed the 
name of his section of the street for E911 
clarity. So, his new address is 25 Wadleigh 
Point Rd., but mail sent to the old address 
will still get to him, provided they don't 
change mail carriers! 

I spent a little time locating Richard 
Cronin. He and Claire have moved to 
Hampton, NH from Stoneham, MA. At the 
time I called, they had just returned from 
their other home in Bridgton, ME. She was 
on her Avay out the door but said she and 
Dick are in good health. Jay Curtis 

( writes: "Finally retired 
in 2001 and at 73 thought about time to let 
younger guys take over the reigns. I do keep 
busy by being the treasurer of our board of 
directors in our town home association. 
During the years since 2001 Kaila and I have 
traveled extensively throughout Asia and 
Europe. Our next trip is to Rome, Greece 
and Turkey this September. I stay in com- 
munication with my old roommate at GDA 
and Hobart, Al Hughes, along with daily e- 
mails to Norm Brown. Jack Deering (ab- is like the Energizer rab- 
bit . . . al'ways going, going, going! And quite 
often, his wife, Ann is right with him! As 
mentioned earlier. Jack and I went to GDA 
last May for Homer. Jack and Joe Welch 
connect about once a week and keep me 
posted of any news coming their ■way. 
Thanks, fellas, but I wish you would foUow 
up on my request for Class Notes submis- 
sions! J Anyone heard from Henry Dunker 
( lately? I can only as- 
sume that 'Dunk' is out straight with his law 
practice or on a well-deserved extended va- 
cation because he hasn't read my emails from 
mid-August. Kevin Gaffney (hk- has finally decided to re- 
tire. He said he had seen Jim Knott and 
Henry Dunker on several occasions. For 
many years, Kev was a police officer and 
then became a court officer in Boston's 
Federal Court. 

Dan Hall ( sent 
an interesting email about a recent trip: "My 
bit of news, not earthshaking, but recent: 
Lorrie and I have just returned from a 
two-week trip visiting friends in Nova 
Scotia and Newfoundland. Highlights in 
Newfoundland included mountain day 
hikes, visiting the oldest Viking settlement in 
North America, touring the GrenfeU muse- 
um devoted to his medical missionary work 
in Labrador and Newfoundland. Did you 
ever see a two-day-old lobster? It fits into the 
palm of one's hand - the size of an ant. We 
were told it takes ten years to mature." 
Thanks, Dan. Sounds like you and Lorrie 
had a wonderful trip. When Brad Harlow 
( answered the phone, I 
asked if I was interrupting anything and he 
said, "No, I was just trying to teach my dog 
Lithuanian." Oh, OK, Brad. He said he had 
a book coming out this summer. When I

t e s 

asked the name of it, he said, "It's called, 
'How to Give Mouth-to-Mouth 
Resuscitation Without Becoming 

Emotionally Involved.'" By this time I was 
practically rolling on the floor laughing. 
When I mentioned our aging class, Brad 
commented, "Imagine having been around 
the sun 76 times and Buster is stiU with us!" 
Great Harlowisms! John Heyl lives on Lake 
Winnipesaukee, NH and he and his wife, 
Lydia, continue to do volunteer work at 
a local hospital. John once owned 
John's Records stockbrokerage inWolfeboro. 
Unfortunately, John suffered a stroke in 2005 
which leaves him unable to drive any great 
distances. He plans on attending his 40th re- 
union at the Univ. of Virginia, where Dave 
Ellsworth ('48) was his roommate. John 
and Dan Hall roomed together at GDA. 

Peter Hill ( is 
still living in Marblehead, MA with his wife, 
Pat. When I lived in Beverly, I could look 
out my window and see Marblehead Light 
flashing in the distance. Beautiful area, Pete. 
He told me that Pat had a hip replacement 
and was looking at scooters. A while ago, his 
son, Peter, donated half his liver in a life-sav- 
ing effort to save his sister. They are both do- 
ing well and Pete said he wrote a poem to 
commemorate the event (see next page). 
Allen Hughes's postcard came back in to- 
day's mail. Al is being 'Westernized'. On the 
card he writes:"! live in Las Vegas and find it 
to be a delightful place to live (10 years)." 
Glad to hear you love that city, Al, 
but just remember to leave your wallet at 
home! I hear they have some bodacious 
gambling haUs out that-a-way. I called Don 
Knowlton ( and 
his wife Ruth answered. She said Don is on 
the run (in a legitimate sense) most of the 
time and gave me his cell phone number. I 
reached him as he was turning into a gas sta- 
tion near his home in Orlando, FL. Don 
works for the Harkin Development con- 
struction company. He hadn't heard about 
buddy Jim Knott's honorary degree but said 
he would give him a call. Dana Mayo 
( and his wife Jeanne 
d' Arc were invaded twice this year by 1 5 de- 
scendants and in-laws. Once was in May for 
his wife's birthday and again in August for 
Dana's. Congratulations to each of you! 
Dana said he "dodged four curve balls by 

surgery in '05 and '06, including open-heart. 
It helped having daughter, Sara, as a surgeon 
at Maine Medical Center." They both are 
looking forward to our 60th class reunion 
next year. 

I received an email from Ed Movsesian 
( in mid-August. He 
said he attended our 45th reunion and has 
been to campus concerts several times. He 
says he's feeling fine and works part time 
as a mental health counselor, as well 
as doing some substitute teaching in area 
high and middle schools. Ed is living 
in Bradford, MA. Leslie Richard (lo- lives with his wife, 
Lorraine, in Appleton, WI. Les says he stiU 
belongs to the Appleton McDowell Men's 
Chorus. He said that GDA taught him how 
to study, and I think most of us can agree 
with that observation in our own lives. His 
voice teacher was Clark Nelly's ('37) 
father, who also taught Art Sager!! He re- 
called the '47 Christmas break when he. 
Jack Deering and Jack's brother, Robbie, 
had a pick-up game of basketball with some 
National Guard guys and trounced 
them twice! Henry 'Hank' Sanders 
(, as you may know, 
moved from Darien, CT to Portsmouth, NH 
in 2003. For this past Memorial Day, his old 
hometown, where Hank was First Selectman 
for three terms, invited him back to take part 
in the holiday celebration. Hank said he en- 
joyed walking in the parade and delivering 
his "Patriotism in 2006" address at the 
Veterans Cemetery. The town was most 
grateful for his participation. Hubert 'Bud' 
or 'Junior" Snow ( 
lived a few doors down from me on Ober St. 
in Beverly, MA. His recall of events of the 
late '30s and early '40s astounds me. Permit 
me to include his edited email and say 'thank 
you, Bud, for the memories': "Hi Norm, It 
was good speaking with you yesterday a.m. I 
can remember the various parties that your 
folks had over the years. I could hear the 
band at my house. I also remember the 1938 
hurricane; and the number of trees that came 
down on your property. I think it was the 
first time that I saw a chain saw. I remember 
that night walking down to Hospital Point 
with my Dad (not a good idea). I would hear 
a crack and do'wn would go a tree. Once at 
the Lighthouse the ocean was boiling! 

People in cars came to look, but trees feU 
across the road after they had past. They were 
stuck. Sincerely, Bud." 

Again, Bud, many thanks. Bud has had 
a good recovery from a heart catherization 
and stent implants. Glad to hear that. Bud. 

Last May, I phoned David Wilcox 

( He mentioned 
that his wife, Jane, was ill. I didn't probe any 
further but we all hope she is coming along 
well, Dave. He did mention that "... the 60s 
were the best golf years!" I forgot to ask you, 
Dave; did you mean the 1960s, when you 
were in your 60s, or when you shot in the 
60s? Hmmm...John Walker (jvwalk- and his wife Jan (JoAnne) 
are still happily ensconced in their retire- 
ment home in Amherst, MA. John is still 
teaching watercolor and Jan does a lot of 
volunteer work. John says he plans to be at 
our 60th reunion next June and hopes to 
meet up, again, with his old classmates. 
Leland "Lee" Wilson doesn't have email 
but in my phone call he said all is going well 
with him and his wife, Helen. Lee writes, "I 
retired from Verizon in 1989. Since then I 
have been enjoying my family, i.e., wife, two 
daughters and one son. I have 1 1 grandchil- 
dren. About three times a year we have them 
all together. It's a real fun time; sometimes a 
little hectic, but fun. I have been a season 
ticket holder of the N.E. Patriots since day 
one. For one reason or another, I have 
missed six games since the beginning. I play 
a lot of golf and as I get older, my scores get 
higher. I have played in Ireland, Scotland, 
Bermuda, Spain, Cancun and numerous oth- 
er courses in the good old U.S. of A." As for 
myself, Norm Brown (, 
all is going well with one exception. My 
wife, Marion, had a fall in our living room 
last February and fractured her pelvis in two 
places. She returned home after two weeks 
in rehab and is now getting around well with 
a walker. On 8/19, my son and his wife had 
a family reunion to celebrate the new addi- 
tion to their home. My family was there as 
were my daughter-in-la'ws from Florida. 
The highlight was the arrival of my grand- 
daughter and her two children who live in 
Oxford, England. She said it was bit of a 
nightmare trying to get on the plane at 
Heathrow Airport (remember the terrorist 

54 The Archon '^^ FaR 2006 

threats to blow up 10 planes going to the 
USA?). Once an agent found out she was 
headed to Boston and had family in Maine, 
they were whisked to the front of the line 
and placed onboard. I don't understand 
Security's reasoning but I sure did appreciate 
it this time. 

When I called Blake Ireland, he hadn't 
come home from his work at Raytheon, but 
his wife Anne answered the phone. She had 
just come back from a trip to Turkey. She 
and Blake sometimes travel alone, but most- 
ly they are together if their schedules coin- 
cide. Anne said they enjoy going on African 
safaris and the next one will make it an even 
dozen!! Anne is also a docent at the 
Massachusetts Museum of Fine Arts. 

Condolences: When I reached Richard 
"Spider" Leavitt's home in Greenville 
Maine, his wife, Marilyn, said that Dick had 
died in June, 2005. 'Spider' was a great asset 
to our ski team, especially in the downhill 
slalom races. My call to John "Pat" 
Patterson was answered by his daughter, 
Margaret Sirignano, who informed me that 
Pat had died in his sleep on Nov. 15, 2004, at 
the age of 76. Pat was a major force on our 
basketball team. We send our sympathies to 
all family members. 

' Although the school's name has 
changed to The Governor's Academy, I hope 
the academy will forgive me for using the 
designation, GDA, in my Class Notes. That 
was the name when we spent our years there 
and it is closely associated with, and almost 
revered, within our class circle. I thank all of 
you who took the time to contribute to my 
first Class Notes column. Remember, with- 
out you there would be no '47 Class Notes 
... this column is for you. I would like to 
hear from the rest of you, too, so please send 
me your phone numbers and street & email 
addresses. Without this updated informa- 
tion, you may become one of our "lost" 
classmates. So, let's keep in touch, guys! I 
wish you all the best.

As an epilogue, I offer you this heart-felt 
letter and poem from Peter Hill, as I allud- 
ed to earlier. Peter writes: "This is a story 
about two people and an extremely deadly 
disease; how it touched the lives of my fam- 
ily, friends, and myself. It is as satisfying por- 
trayal of the human spirit as one could wish 
for. Ten years ago, my daughter, Laura, was 
diagnosed with primary schlerosing cholan- 
gitis (PSC) a rare disease of the bile duct 
which clogs and eventually destroys the liv- 
er. There is medicine to slow down its pro- 
gression but no cure — only liver transplanta- 

As Laura's condition worsened, her 
name was added to the Liver Transplant 
Registry as a candidate for an organ. Livers 
are harvested from cadavers, and how sick 
the patient is determines how soon their 
name will appear at the top of the waiting 
list. (Many candidates on the list perish). 
Because of the shortage of organs, live liver 
transplants are even less common. BUT, 
Laura's brother Peter HiU Jr. had a plan. 
Without regard for his safety, Pete volun- 
teered to donate 60% of his liver to save his 
sister's life. The operation would take place 
only after a thorough screening where Peter 
was found to be a perfect match. On 
February 23, 2004, the operation took place 
at the Lied Transplant Center, University of 
Nebraska in Omaha. Today, they are both 
healthy and able to lead safe and normal 
lives. I composed the following poem to give 
thanks to my son Peter Jr. for his bravery and 
his love for his sister Laura. Also, I hope this 
story may help others understand the seri- 
ousness and the complexity of all organ 


There is a story 
that you must hear. 
So come my children 
and gather near. 

It is a tale 
of our hero. 
And he is one 
we all do know. 

He's helped us all 
one time or another; 
And thank God 
he is the brother 

of the one you see. 
I call her Laura-B. 

She was so sick 

she could have died, 

and all of us cried and cried. 

She needed a liver 
so desperately. 
His wonderful sister 
called Laura-B. 

Oh dear Lord 
what could we do 
the sickness she had 
just grew and grew. 

But our hero, 
he had a plan. 
He'd help his sister 
The best he can. 

He went to Omaha 
one year ago. 
He gave 60% of his liver 
our hero. 

And now she is fine 

on the anniversary 

when he gave most of his liver 

to Laura-B. 

And that's the end of the story 
And you all know 
His name is Peter 
My son is our hero.

Irv Grossman died of cancer at Scripps 
Memorial Hospital in La JoUa, California last 

April. Manson Hall's thoughts of him are 
as follows: "Irv spent three years at Governor 
Dummer. He loved sports and was a good 
baseball player and an even better golfer. 
Some of us may remember a picture that ap- 
peared in our 50th reunion booklet showing 
a picture of Irv, who really didn't know how 
to skate, standing on the ice with his ankles 
almost resting on the ice. He is standing with 
Tom Otis and Bob Godfrey and we 
promptly named it the GOG line. One 
spring, we all had a scare when Irv was play- 
ing baseball; he was a starting outfielder and 
was hit on the head by a pitched ball. He 
was rushed to the hospital but it was a few 
weeks later that he was able to return to 
school. He was a sight for sore eyes, even 
though his head was all wrapped in bandag- 
es. He was a friend to all for many reasons, 
not the least because he shared his wonder- 
ful sense of humor. He was a really funny 
guy and all his moaning and groaning 'act' 
gave his classmates howls of laughter. 
During all his years Irv, lovingly called 
'Porky', used to announce various sports 
games in progress to pass the time - usually 
baseball, which was perhaps his most favorite 
sport. Those of us who knew and loved Irv 
never doubted that he would make a suc- 
cessful career in the world of sports. What 
we didn't know was that he would meet, 
love and be loved by his very closest friend 
and wife Tora. Some of us had the opportu- 
nity to stay in touch with Irv over the years 
and we, Tom Emery, Arch des Cognets, 
and I played together with Irv in the 
Vermont Maple Syrup Golf Classic each 
summer. Tora and Irv traveled a good deal 
and one of their joys was to visit London for 
a week of theater, meeting with authors, ac- 
tors and theater critics. They were to have 
made this journey again this past May but for 
Irv's failing health. We know how surprised 
and disappointed classmates will be in read- 
ing of Irv's death. He always gave us such 
pleasure with his spirited conversation spiced 
with humor and love of sports." A noted 
journalist in California wrote and published 
this obituary: "After earning his BA at 
Harvard, Irv earned a Master's in journalism 
at Columbia. Soon after, he became the 
Oceanside Blade-Tribune's sports editor and 
columnist in Oceanside, California. One of 
his well-remembered columns was tided, 'A 

funny thing happened on the way to the 
ballpark last night. I got married.' The for- 
mer Padres broadcaster. Bob Chandler said, 'I 
can't say I've ever met anyone smarter than 
Irv.' He was around sports all his Hfe. He 
staged three Davis cups in San Diego, and an 
ATP tournament. His work with La Costa's 
Acura Classic has helped raise more than 
$1,500,000 for the Scripps Pollster Breast 
Care Center. Irv Grossman Public Relations 
firm was involved in everything from profes- 
sional volleyball and racquetbaU to Winston 
Cup racing. He ran the Clairol Cro^vn and 
Honda Civic tennis tournaments at La 
Costa. In the golfing arena, he helped organ- 
ize and run the PGA's Honda class since 
1982. In 1976 when Irv met Tom 
Broderick, the sportswear manufacturer who 
was looking for publicity for his Title IX. Irv 
suggested, 'Why don't we give a Heisman 
Trophy to women?' and so they did. Tora re- 
mains involved. Irv was a remarkable man. 
If you were ever interested in sports over the 
years, he touched you in some way. His spir- 
it will live on in the sports arena." 

Bill Judson has graciously provided us 
his view from Central Park since 9/11: "The 
Park here in the center of New York City has 
never looked better. The crocuses have 
come and gone; the sod has come out strong 
and green; and the trees are in fuU leaf and 
recently pruned and injected with a chemi- 
cal that is supposed to kill the Long Horn 
Beetle which came over from China in the 
wood crates. The beetle can kill a tree in 
about two years so the US Department of 
Agriculture is treating all the trees in the 
City's parks as well as those on the streets and 
back yards. The memory of 9/11 has faded, 
but not the arguments and disputes as to 
what should be put at Ground Zero. Every 
so often we are reminded that we are a 
prime terrorist target by the newspapers re- 
porting a threat to the subways, or learning 
that NYC's share of the National Terrorist 
Budget has been cut by the Homeland 
Security Department by 40 percent while 
Cheyenne, Wyoming's has been raised by 50 
percent. NYC does seem to be constantly at 
odds with opinion in the rest of the 
Country. We are told that we are safer be- 
cause of Iraq, and it is true that we have not 
had another terrorist incident, but we still

containers coming into the Port of NY and 
only 5 percent are inspected. We look at aU 
the chemical factories (a prime target) across 
the river in NJ, only a few miles from where 
we and a few million people live. The City 
is enjoying an unprecedented boom. People, 
especially young people, are coming to the 
City in great numbers. Married couples 
with children are staying in the City and not 
moving to the suburbs as they once did. All 
of this has created a housing and construc- 
tion boom, and, of course,jobs. Immigration 
(both legal and illegal) has helped to mitigate 
what could be a severe labor shortage. These 
people have been a boon to the City with 
their hard work and willingness to do the 
hard and thankless jobs that a city needs. 
We're thankful for this recovery and we are 
hopeful that it will continue." 

Bud Frame reports: "Well, now that we 
have settled the Yankee/Red Sox rivalry, 
here's the news from Rochester. Peggy and 
I went to Argentina (eighth time), Brazil, 
Uruguay, back in March and April and I am 
arranging a golf trip in Oct. to Dubai. That's 
going to be incredible! Our three sons and 
three wonderful daughters-in-law and 10 
grandchildren live within 3-4 miles. We are 
lucky and blessed. Hope you are healthy and 
stiU regular! My warmest regards to you and 
I salute you for persisting on this thankless 
job as our class secretary. Godspeed." Kim 
Page says: "Mostly tree trimming and clear- 
ing to regain our view of the Bay. Extreme 
growth over last two wet summers brought 
all this on! Visitors continue to flock to O.T

The summer of 2006 has been a busy 
time for the members of the Class of 1950. 
With vacations from school, grandchildren 
dominate our calendars. Responses to our 
September 1st deadHne for inclusion this fall 
in the Archon do not properly reflect our 

determination to make the June 8-10, 2007 
Alumni Weekend a significant gathering of 
our group. 

Tim Greene was first to report with 
news of the mini-reunions taking place 
around the country: "I had lunch August 12 
at Sebasco, ME with Bob Comey. Bob and 
Sallie recently moved to Durham, NC into a 
condo near UNC. They look forward to au- 
diting some classes at the University this fall. 
Bob remains a loyal Cleveland Indians fan, 
but he has given up any postseason playoff 
hopes for 2006. He and Bob Cushman 
plan to meet later in August." Tim and 
Debbie hosted a wedding celebration for 
daughter Jodi on July 22 at Nahant, MA 
with 115 people in attendance. All went 
well. Tim is a direct descendant of General 
Nathaniel Greene of Revolutionary War 
fame. The Providence Journal published a 
long, continued history of Gen. Greene 
which ran from May until the end of July. 
Having lived in the area where Greene spent 
his early years, I found it interesting and 
saved the articles for Tim. 

From Dave Esty came news that "all's 
well over here in paradise. Getting in shape 
for winter '06-'07 ski season for my last year 
at ski patrolling. Mountain biking is my 
newest addition. Another grandkid last 
week, another girl, no boys yet. Still shud- 
dering when I see/hear 'The Governor's 
Academy'. It should be 'The Lieutenant 
Governor's Academy'." 

"I hope I can still call it GDA," says 
Don Bishop. "I wasn't as incensed as some 
of our classmates, but I think it was too 
much of a tempest in a teapot. Our life is 
more and more entrenched in Maine as op- 
posed to Cape Cod, seven to eight months a 
year sailing, reading, etc. Reunion 2007, 
hopefully. George TuUoch was here for a 
visit yesterday. Nice to see him." The ad- 
dress for Don is P.O. Box 283, Brooksville, 
ME 04617. 

A few days later an email from George 
Tulloch arrived. "Benni and I went to 
Maine last week to visit several old friends 
including Don Bishop and is wife Polly in 
their new digs (designed by Don). The site 
is atop a bluff overlooking Penobscott Bay. 
The house and view are magnificent. After 
a dinner of three lobsters apiece, we jabbered 

into the night, then the next a.m. went on a 
boat ride in fog that would have made 
London proud and required all of Don's nav- 
igational tools to get back to the dock. Great 
fun seeing old friends and we plan to do it 
again. We are on for 2007." 

An email from NC confirmed that Bob 
Comey and his wife Sallie "took a giant 
step in late September by moving all of 10 
miles to Carolina Meadows, a continuing 
care retirement community near Chapel 
Hill. We were lucky to sell our house in just 
two weeks. Unfortunately, the closing dates 
on the old and new houses did not mesh, 
and we had to move twice — first into a tiny 
apartment and then to Carolina Meadows. 
In between moves, we spent three weeks in 
Maine and had delightful meals with Tim 
Greene and Kim Page '49 but couldn't 
hook up with Bob Cushman and his wife 
Diane ." 

Next came word from Bob Cushman: 
"I have the dates in my calendar 8-10 June 
2007 and let's have a better turn-out than in 
2005! I missed a mini-mini reunion with 
Bob Comey and Tim Greene here at 
Sebasco (Maine not Maui) due to my 74th 
birthday bash and big family reunion." We 
can count on Cush and Diane as we saw in 

Charlie Bowen called on September 
1st with news that he and Calvine will be at 
GDA in June. They spent much of the sum- 
mer at their island home in Canada. At the 
end of September they'll spend a week in 
Italy before joining a cruise to Istanbul and 
into the Black Sea with ports of call includ- 
ing Yalta. On the way back to Rome they'll 
visit several Greek Islands and Malta. They 
will be in Charleston in November and plan 
to see Dave Hershey and Brenda in 

I called Rick Greenwood to make sure 
that he and Jean are all set for GDA in June. 
We discovered that we both had been the 
victims of insect bites this summer. Blood 
tests revealed mine to be Lyme disease, treat- 
ed with three weeks of medication. Rick 
still doesn't know what his was, but the 
swelling, multiple trips to doctors, MRI tests 
and other inconveniences are over at last. 

Fred Franzius reports: "After I was

asked to submit my resignation from the 
Mohegan Congregational Church in June 
'05 for describing it as an ecclesiastical soci- 
ety, rather than a church, I went to the 
Miracle Temple, 727 Bank St, N.L. CT. It's 
85 percent African American, Pentecostal, 
loud!!!! and Cell based. More important is 
the fact they quickly accepted me as one of 
them. I look forward to a Reunion at 
Dickinson College, from which I flunked 
out in '54; (I graduated from Bucknell in 
'57), and this will be my first visit in 52 years! 
Since I sent in my registration, three of my 
Sigma Chi brothers have called, which has 
been a thrill! Our youngest son, Tom, just 
moved from Guilford, CT, to outside 
Charleston, SC, where he heads up a depart- 
ment of architects in a high-end Real Estate 
Development company, plus outside archi- 
tects who are needed. While the rest of the 
family is sad he is so far away, I'm thrilled his 
work is so good that headhunters came 
looking for him. Our biggest joys are when 
the three youngest grandchildren (7, 6, and 
1) romp all over us. I hate to refuse them, 
but a weakness in my back kicks in after I've 
picked them up, so I have to steel myself to 
tell them 'No'." 

As a Red Sox fan, August has been be- 
yond belief. See you in June, but let me hear 
from you before February for the spring edi-

The Class of 1951 was well represented 
in June for our 55th Reunion with the re- 
turn of Marc amRhein, Ken Bistany, 
Peter Dunning, Fred Franzius, Chuck 
Hussey, Bill Lacey, George McGregor, 
Dave Pope, Yogi Wenz, and the writer 
hereof together with a loyal supportive 
group of wives. Once again Dave Pope and 
his wife "Woodie" hosted a Sunday gather- 
ing at their home in Hampton Beach, with 
an outstanding brunch under the tutelage of 
notable guest chef Hal amRhein. And we 

Members of the Class of 1951 at Reunion 2006 

were pleased that the Headmaster was able to 
join us on a beautiful early summer day. 
Subsequently, we have heard from Ed 
Stockwell who is again summering on 
Plum Island, with one of the highlights be- 
ing a "reunion dinner" with a few survivors 
of the teenage years, one of whom was Bill 
Lacey. Ed, also, had a paper on his research 
of infant mortality presented at the annual 
conference of the American Biological 
Association in Toronto. Dave Bullock and 
his brother, Don '53 went to the annual 
Christmas soiree in Boston where his broth- 
er had the opportunity to talk with trustee 
Dan Morgan '67 about the name change. 
Dave says his brother was told he wouldn't 
understand because he was too old, to which 
Dave states, "I'm even older, so would have 
no chance of getting it either." Jim White 
reports a very enjoyable summer with his 
principal activity walking every day and los- 
ing weight in the process. "Sorry to have 
missed the reunion." Dave Pope writes that 
a grandson was successfully married at their 
house, but adds that the next day, when he 
was refinishing the terrace floors, "Woodie" 
slipped and cracked the fibula on her leg. 
Her recovery time is 4-6 weeks, but she will 
be ready when they leave for Turkey and the 
Greek Islands October 10th, returning 
November 6th. Dave hopes to be skiing 
soon after and has plans for Tahoe on 
February '07. Yogi Wenz sent a couple of 
reunion photos with the statement: "some " 
of the world's oldest juvenile delinquents."

55th Class Reunion 



Class or 1952 

June 8, 9, 10, 2007 

What a joy to hear from John Gill who 
was in the Boston area and stayed for a few 
nights here in Marblehead. We had lobsters 
at the Barnicle one evening, and the next day 
we all took a trip to see GDA. As John had 
not been back there in a great while, he was 
amazed at the many new buildings and loca- 
tion of old dorms in new places. It was a 
lovely day for us ■with an enjoyable lunch at 
Michael's in the Port. John and Margie were 
then off to see family on the Islands and 
would be heading home after their visit. 
John also saw his own photographs with an 
"infamous" Junior Party at John Salinger's 
home and as well the ice cream soiree at 
Olde Newbury Golf Course where all of 
you were incriminating evidence! It was 
good to see them both! Another piece of 
news was our 50th Class Reunion at Colby 
College with about 75 percent of us all re- 
turning to enjoy wonderful memories and 
dear friendships from Thursday to Sunday. 
In attendance from GDA were Don Rice, 
Bob Erb, Peter Bramhall with their wives, 
and it was good to spend time with "Erbie" 
who has had some surgery of late. Peter, be- 
ing a Bowdoin grad, had to endure the usu- 
al barbs from all there at Colby, and I am

Buster watches over his charges, 
Peter Bragdon and Frank Huntress '52 

pleased to say that his wife, Hope, is the 
President of our Alumni Society. As 
Bowdoin makes you pay for food and drink, 
Peter found himself enjoying the perks and 
benefits of a COLBY education - that high 
life - that escaped him when Ted Eames sent 
him to Bowdoin. Don Rich is well and was 
in good form with us all. How wonderful it 
is to see dear friends once again. The class 
presented the College with $11 million dol- 
lars as a reunion gift, the most dollars ever by 
a graduating class. I hasten to say that Peter's 
class likewise set a giving record there with 
$15 milhon dollars! A whole lot of giving 
going on! The 50th was great fun, and the 
class family was at home with one another 
once again! I was sorry to miss out seeing 
Howard Quimby and Ed Carter when 
they were at the GDA weekend but have 
written to them both to keep in touch. I do 
hear that the GDA reunion time was excel- 
lent - except for the rain which into a life 
some must fall - and I shall be on hand next 
year. Lastly, be warmed! Any of you who go 
to a college where you might be playing 
Williams - Brian Morrissey '05 is playing 
football for that college and loves to demol- 
ish opponents. He did likewise when play- 
ing for GDA! Hope all of you enjoyed your 

50th reunion! We are all at that great and 
wonderful age! 

Howard Quimby reports: "I attended 
my 16th Frozen Four with my three sons. 
My favorite weekend of the year. Great 
hockey, good food, beer and a chance for 
family bonding while investigating a new 

The FM Smith's have become over the 
years a rather large group of individuals. 
With five children, it doesn't take long to 
add eleven grandchildren. So now we are 
spread all over the globe from Moscow, 
Hong Kong to Texas and NJ. Jerrie and I are 
at the 50th threshold of colleges and mar- 
riage which is exciting and a bit daunting as 
the time seems to have evaporated. We are 
dual citizens of Texas and Maine which al- 
lows us the privilege of staying abreast of 
both wonderful parts of the USA. I have 
been able to continue my involvement in the 
oil business which has been fortuitous; how- 
ever, nothing lasts forever so I am always 
looking for new opportunities generated by 
my industrious children. GDA was turning 
point for me and I have al'ways held my two 
years there as time 1 will never forget. I wish 
all my classmates good health and a reward- 
ing life." 

Noble Smith reports: "Couple of 
points: first, old age has not caught up with 
me yet; second, Bertie and I have started a 
new business — Maine Cottage Restorations, 
LLC and we already have purchased our first 
Maine cottage to restore; third. Noble Smith 
Associates, my development and marketing 
consulting firm in its 27 year, is still func- 
tioning and it is actively involved with a 
number of environmental clients, all in the 
Pine Tree State; forth, I have just incorporat- 
ed a new non-profit Maine Environment 
Corps, an organization that will identify, en- 
list and help train primarily senior volunteers 
to work specifically on environmental issues 
and challenges throughout the State. The 
Corps also has a strong intergenerational 
volunteer mentoring program that will help 
motivate younger citizens for the next gen- 
eration of environmental leaders. Fifth, all 
12 of our grandchildren have visited us and 
daily activities have included 'hot dogging', 
sailing, kayaking, motor boat cruising, swim- 
ming, tennis, golf, horse shows, croquet, gar- 

Frank Huntress '52 and John Gill '52 

dening, indoor games; so you can see, old age 
has not monopolized our lives yet! We had 
some old friends from Marblehead stay with 
us last weekend, and we talked about two in- 
dividuals - Rey Moulton and Rib Smythe 
and the contributions that they both made 
not only to Governor Dummer Academy, 
but also to their communities and families. I 
see Jim Knott '47 continually both profes- 
sionally and personally and he speaks about 
your never-ending enthusiasm for 'that 
school down in Byfield'. We love it in Maine 
and the Turnpike entrance sign is correct - 
'The Way Life Should Be!'" 

We heard from Sabu who is awaiting 
the football season with friends along the 
sidelines. Also Barbara Sawyer wrote for 
Lawrence Sawyer: "Skip is still at The 
Monarch Center in Saco, ME. He has diffi- 
culty walking, talking and with short term 
memory. I go to see him every day and take 
him for car rides to the ocean, etc. on the 
good days." Richard Rothmund writes 
that he is enjoying full retirement and no 
more Sarbanes-Ozley or board meetings. 
Writing, gardening, and boating are much 
preferred. Best to all." Guy Tudor writes: 
"Latest adventure: To Panama again last 
January, but first trip into the Darien - east- 
ernmost province on Colombian border. 
Flew into Cana, old gold-mining camp, now 
a Biological Reserve - birds wonderful, with 
four species of Macaws. Also, overnight at 
remote Embara Indian Village, where I fell 
off a damn horse!"

Gump Hayden! Our crack private investi-

sighting in Jackson, New Hampshire this past 
winter. He was coming out of a liquor store 
as Nuff was going in. Gump is now driving 
a Zamboni in Conway, New Hampshire in- 
stead of Florida. It is a better deal in New 
Hampshire because he also works the pizza 
place at the rink. The scuttlebutt is that he 
lost another house to one of his wives and 
that the extra money from the pizza place is 
coming in very handy. After 24 years of liv- 
ing in Concord, Massachusetts, Jack Morse

moved into a condominium in Boston. Life 
is very different there — no mowing, raking, 
planting, snowplowing, etc. After 1 1 years of 
retirement, there seems to be plenty to do in 
the way of entertainment. There are also so 
many restaurants (and cocktail lounges) that 
one does not ever have to cook or keep a 
stocked liquor/wine cabinet. 

We also heard from Mike Dunsford 
who is still active out in the Lake Tahoe re- 
gion. Mike spends lots of time hiking, back- 
packing, and back-country skiing, and he has 
been getting his grandchildren into the out- 
door lifestyle. In order to support his 
lifestyle, he still is active in the commercial 
real estate industry. That is it for this 
newsletter. Our 50th Reunion is coming up 
in just under two years. How is it possible? 

Richard P. Morse Sr., M.D. reports: 
"I retired along with my ■wife (Betty) from 
"World Gospel Mission in August 2004 after 
serving with them for 37 years. Over 32 of 
these years were spent at Tenwek Hospital in 
Kenya. Much of my time was spent caring 
for patients in the pediatric ward. During 
our time in Kenya we saw Tenwek Hospital 
grow from a 50-bed rural 'bush' hospital to a 
300-bed referral and teaching hospital. We 
have settled in Oaks Village, a retirement 
community in Avon Park which is in south- 
central Florida. We have survived several 
hurricanes in the past two years as the storms 
tracked up the southern portion of the 
peninsula. Presently, I am involved teaching 
Primary Health Care to prospective mission- 
aries at a local college in nearby Lake Wales. 
Our son Rick is a hospitalist physician in 
Georgia and our daughter Joy is working 
with overseas refugees in South Carolina."

Norm Kalat states that he is alive and 
well in Santa Fe, NM. Norm and his wife 
Susie have four grandchildren and visit them 
as often as possible. Carl Youngman shares 
that his son Andrew got married in June fol- 
lowing his sister Julie's wedding last 
September. Andre'w starts his MBA at 
Wharton this fall. Carl reminds us that we 
started at GDA 50 years ago. Carl always was 
much older than the rest of us who think it 
was only ten years ago. I think Carl speaks 
for a number of us when he states "We are 
all wrestling with 'The Governor's 
Academy'. What is it...TGA? GA?" To me 
it's easy... it will always be GDA! Bill 
Tuxbury writes that he has been working in 
New Jersey since the start of the year on an 
interim management assignment. Their son, 
Jim, an attorney in Washington, DC. and his 
wife, Lorin, are expecting their first child in 
October which will be BiU and Edie's first 
grandchild. Congratulations, Bill and Edie. 
Grandchildren are great! We have four and 
really enjoy them. 

John Silver shares that he used to think 
folks on Medicare were old! Almost retired, 
John is still doing a few residential remodel- 
ing drawings. He spends three months in 
Rangely, Maine. The rest of the year he is in 
Cape Coral, Florida. Unlike Bill Tuxbury, 
John has three grandchildren... Kayliegh (al- 
most 12), Doran(5) and Logan (2 months). 
John and Lee visit Atlanta frequently to see 
Doran and Logan and daughter Jen, and hus- 
band, Scott. Daughter Heather and grand- 
daughter Kayliegh live in Florida near John 
and his wife Lee, as does Lee's 90- year-old 
dad. John still enjoys boating sailing, and 
traveling. Sounds like John has an ideal re- 
tirement situation. Now I like Rangely in 
the winter when they have snow. I bet John 
leaves before the first snows. Received a 
phone call from Greg Meyer after I had re- 
ceived a postcard announcing Greg's and his 
wife's new home. Greg now lives at 3551 
Duke Firth Street in Land of Lakes, Florida 
34638. Their son is now in the third grade. 
Can you believe it that Greg has a son the 
age of some of our grandchildren? 
Greg... you are a devil! Also, a brave man! 
Based on the picture of the new Meyer man- 
sion, I recommend that we have a mid-five- 
year reunion at Greg's new home! What do 
you say. . .classmates? Feel free to give Greg a 
call also at 813 926-8785... I know he would 
love to hear from his classmates. 

Walcott Hamilton emails the follow- 
ing: "Retirement in Buenos Aires is just 
dandy — quite an adventure really. We sold 
our home in Atlanta last year and bought a 
house in Buenos Aires. This is a wonderful 
city, fuU of life and a people who enjoy good 
food, warm affection and beauty. We don't 
own a car because we don't need one. There 
is plenty of affordable transportation and it's 
a good walking-city anyway. The architec- 
ture is a mix of 50s contemporary high-rises 
and old buildings adorned with magnificent 
stonework. And the stonework artisanship is 
alive and weU as is that of the beautiful, ubiq- 
uitous wrought ironwork. There is a zoning 
law which prohibits any two buildings on 
the same block having the same front. So 
there is lots of variety in the appearance of 
the streets, which are here and there tree- 
lined. Groceries are just around the corner 
and the health care system is excellent and 
affordable. It's nice to go to the doctor and 
not be on a kind of timed conveyer belt. 
They actually talk to you here. Sorry I 
couldn't make it to Class Reunion." 
Hmm...on second thought maybe we 
should have our mid-five- year reunion in 
Buenos Aires. We could stop at the Greg 
Meyer mansion for a day or two and then 
proceed south to Argentina. Let's really think 
about this one. Who is in? 

Dick Henry emails: "Got your request 
for news today, so here goes! I've actually 
been meaning to get in touch with you be- 
cause my wife, daughter Megan, and I drove 
right down High Street last month, but I 

couldn't remember your number 

[it's # 266] and it was daytime so I couldn't 
see the light on! (I guess I wiU have to get a 
flag or something for the daylight hours. I 
could probably get an old GDA flag for a 
cheap price!) We were on our way from 
Portsmouth to Boston via GDA (or is it now 
TGA?) which Megan had never seen. We 
drove past your house and then down 
through Newburyport before heading to 
school. The town looks so great now (as it 
has for many years). It's hard to remember 
what it looked like almost 50 years ago! 
GDA looked great, too, although we were 
very sad not to be able to see Marty. We had 
not known that he had gone back into the 
hospital for more treatment. He was home, 
but recuperating. Our news is that my wife 
Anne has finally retired as Assistant Head of 
The HiU School, and we have relocated to 
Okatie, SC. We are in a rental home while 

62 TlieArcho 

FaD 2006 

we complete construction of our retirement 
dream home on Callawassie Island, which is 
halfway between Beaufort and BlufFton, SC. 
The house should be done in early October. 
It's not too far off 1-95, so it will be a con- 
venient stop for any classmates driving to 
and from Florida! Our daughter Marion 
was married in April. She is a resident in 
surgery at Yale New Haven Hospital. Megan 
is still a dean, teaches history, and coaches 
lacrosse at St. John's School in Houston, 
Texas. Son John lives in Columbus, Ohio. 
My brother John just celebrated his 50th in 
Byfield and reports that the school did a 
great job on their reunion. I'U be SURJE to 
be there for ours!" 

Great to hear from you, Dick! I have a 
son in Columbus, Ohio also. More thoughts 
here... stop at Dick Henry's on our way to 
Greg's before Argentina. This sounds like a 
real trip now! 

Chris Prewitt writes that he and his 
wife, Jill, retired this past June. Ten years in 
the charter business is all this the old man 
can handle. They wiU continue to live in 
Hope Town in the Bahamas. They wiU live 
on their boat when the house is rented and 
finally do some sailing. (Oohh... I see an- 
other segment to our trip here! Are you all 
with me?) Their son Chris is teaching surf- 
ing in Australia and takes groups on surf 
tours throughout the Maldives. (Wow... now 
we are talking a super expedition!) Their 
daughter, Liz, lives in Greensborough, NC. 
Unlike many of us, Chris and Jill are still not 
grandparents yet, but they are hopeful. Chris 
shares that he starting to learn the banjo and 
it is quite a challenge. (NO... as part of our 
expedition we are not going canoeing down 
some southern river for Chris to play duel- 
ing banjos with some little kid on a bridge!) 
Chris adds a post script that "God only can 
imagine what Greg Meyer is up to!" 

On the home front, I am still busy with 
educational consulting and training, manag- 
ing Maple Crest Farm, and mentoring some 
area principals. I am threatening to go back 
to work so I can get a vacation. My wife, 
Carol, resigned her special education teach- 
ing position, but has not decided to retire 
yet. She will still be involved in the special 
education field and education in one form 
or another. In October the whole family is 
traveling to Jamaica to verify a miracle oc- 
curring ...the marriage of our son Kane to a 

wonderful soon to be daughter-in-law, Lori. 
At age 35 he wiU be the last of our four chil- 
dren to be married. It will be a special occa- 
sion as all of our children and grandchildren 
from 6 months to 4 _ years old will be pres- 
ent. Well, that is the news from 266 High 
Street! Our trip is now planned ...We will 
have Chris Prewitt sail us all from the 
Bahamas to Argentina. This will be better 
than the Great Army Bridge Truck 
Expedition that yours truly took three years 
ago from Byfield, Mass to Romeo, Florida! 
My time is up... I thank you for yours. 
Remember the porch light is always on for 
you. Now I have to look for a flag for the 
daylight hours. 

Carl Youngman writes: "My son 
Andrew got married to Heather Stanhaus 
this past June. They then moved from 
Chicago to Philadelphia where Andrew is 
starting his MBA studies at Wharton and 
Heather is working at the Children's 
Hospital of Philadelphia. Joan and I know 
where they will be for the next two years, at 
least. My daughter Julie, who married just a 
year ago, finished her Master's in Education 
at Lesley University in Boston and has her 
first classroom, a fourth grade class in 
BeUingham, MA. Joan and I recently had a 
wonderful fishing experience off Sandwich, 
MA where I caught a 46", 45 lb. striped 
bass Naturally, I was thrilled. And be- 
fore I could really enjoy the feat (working 
it around two lobster buoys), Joan 
caught a 36" one herself !! Great stuff. 
We now have freezer fuU for the winter. 
It has been a wonderful summer in New 

England It is the best place to be. We are 

looking forward to our normal winter plans 
of getting out of here. Hello to all." 

Bill Lelash says, "After graduating from 
the Wharton School, I joined the Marine 
Corps and saw action in Viet Nam as a 
Marine aviator; I left the Corps as a captain 
and joined the U.S. Secret Service - I was 
then hired as the head of security for several 
Saudi oil ministers and retired in '03. My 
best to everyone at Governor Dummer es- 
pecially the Class of '60."

The only response I received was from 
the peripatetic Albie Booth who reported 
that he had recently had dinner with Linda 
and Sam Wakeman at their home in 
Cohasset - the same house at which the

years ago. Albie also reported having lunch 
with Dave Williams in New Hampshire and 
of having plans to see Deana and Dave 
Stringer in September. He had just re- 
turned from a great trip to Iceland with his 
daughters Stacey and Katie. He concluded 
by saying that all was well in Tucson.

This is the time of year during which I 
miss the Northeast the most. I can only 
imagine that the trees are getting ready to 
turn, the days are getting brisk and it is time 
to think of what you are going to wear for 
Halloween. I am on a campaign to keep the 
GDA fires burning (see I can't seem to avoid 
including the D with the GA). I imagine it 
will always be that way for many of us. Here

all tweaked about the old school.

One of our classmates asked me recent- 
ly about the whereabouts of Doug Coupe. 
All it took was a quick search of the White 
Pages and there he was in Bluffton, SC. For 
those who are unfamiliar with southeastern 
U.S. geography Bluffton is not far from 
Hilton Head. Doug lives with his wife 
Vivian, plays a respectable game of golf and, 
as far as I can determine, is on a constant 
tour checking in on the six grandchildren. 
Doug andVivian have a blended family with 
offspring in locations such as Wisconsin and 
Seattle. Doug still gets back to New England 
in his position on the Board ofTrustees at his 
Alma Mater, Springfield College in 

Just in from Mac Donaldson from his 
beach cottage in Ipswich: "Striper fishing is 
good, and we are enjoying our granddaugh-

fore Mac runs into Steve Kasnet since they 
operate out of the same boatyard. Since Mac 
had family obligations as I reel at the time of 
our 40th, he hopes to make the 45th next 

Ham Agnew and wife Carol celebrat- 
ed a birthday in grand style last year. Ham, 
always the techie, now sports a website 
where you can vie^w the party at There is little doubt 
that the internet will continue to play a larg- 
er focus in our lives which should help keep 
us in touch. Ham's latest venture is VPAN 
(virtual private network)s, peer to peer net- 
works and, yes, "pesto cubes." Ham has 
found a unique way to infuse your meals 
with pesto flavor in a more efficient way. Ask 
him about it. As I was about to go to press, 
Ham was traveling to Texas with hope of 
seeing Darrel Hamric while there. 

I saw Al "Pebble" Rock in June at our 
40th Colgate Reunion in Hamilton, NY. He 
did cover that there was some new competi- 
tion in our ranks on the golf course. Of 
course, he is stiU posting par scores on a reg- 
ular basis. Peb is still helping new clients out 
of bankruptcy at First Arizona Credit in 

There is always something interesting, 
unique and thoughtful going on in the Hfe of 
Frank Bond. He has a very active law prac- 
tice that takes him to Washington, DC, vari- 

ous courts in Texas and New 
Mexico, of course, and his 
lifelong love of the pere- 
grine falcon. Frank was inti- 
mately involved with the 
producing portions of the 
recently published book. 
Return of the Peregrine. 
This is perhaps the most in- 
formative documentation of 
the greatest conservation bi- 
ology success story of the 
20th century. Frank has 
served as a director of the 
Peregrine Fund since its 
founding in 1976 . 

John Tarbell, with his 
lovely wife Anne, play the 
roles of the "guides on the 
side" for young daughter 
Liza as she is getting more 
involved in horseback riding. In a short tim, 
I quickly found myself awash in horseman- 
ship nomenclature with terms like "equi- 
tation" which obviously means "learning and 
practice of riding a horsemanship." I cheated 
and turned to "American Heritage New 
College Dictionary" to set me straight. I ex- 
tended my fuU support to John as he headed 
for the tack room! It has been a real treat to 
see John during his occasional trips to Palo 
Alto where one of his sisters lives. 

Burke Leahey and Barbara seem to be 
adjusting to the retirement years very well. 
My wife Karen and I spent several days dur- 
ing what must have been the hottest days of 
early August with them at their home in 
Duxbury. Barbara and Burke were major 
sponsors of the first offering of the Duxbury 
Art and Music Festival. The Duxbury Music 
Institute and Festival is a two-week intensive 
program for the study and performance of 
solo and chamber repertoire for undergrad- 
uate students and adult professionals. I fear 
that Karen and I weren't the best guests as we 
were always looking for excuses to get onto 
a boat to cool off rather than being model 
patrons of the arts. However, it was great to 
see Barb and Burke fully enjoying their re- 
tirement. Like many retirees they are looking 
to downsizing in the years ahead. As the 
winter approaches, they will return to their 
winter home in Bonita Springs, Florida.

Stan Healy is stiU cranking out batter- 
ies in the Boston area. I may have printed 
this before, but for those of you in the 
Massachusetts corridor near Marlborough, 
"Stan's the Man". "Anything that requires 
portable power, we sell," said Healy. "It's a 
very niche-y type of business. Just about any 
type of battery you need, we have in stock or 
can get." The store at 644 Boston Post Road 
East (Route 20) in Marlborough is the flag- 
ship store in what wiU eventually be a seven- 
store network to serve consumer and com- 
mercial markets in eastern Massachusetts. 
The Marlborough location will be the 
largest store with office space for business 
support including sales, accounting and fi- 
nance departments. Marlborough is in the 
middle of a franchise territory that extends 
east from Worcester to Weston and north to 
Burlington. I had no idea about all the uses 
for batteries. 

It would be great to hear from you 
about what is happening in your lives too. It 
is so much earlier to gather and distribute in- 
formation via email these days. Take a few 
minutes some time and let me know what's 
happening in your neck of the woods. 
During some sleuthing of my own, us today, 
I was able listen to and view an interview 
with Andy Whittemore via a mini lecture 
series on Brigham & Women's Hospital 
website. Andy, who is the Chief Medical 
Officer at Brigham Women's Hospital, can

be viewed discussing various aspects of com- 
plication of aneurisms via a mini-lecture se- 
ries available on-line. Fascinating. 

As for things in the Tom Tobey house- 
hold, we are fast approaching our second 
wedding in four months! This one will be 
staged on the shoulder of Mt.Tamalpais just 
north of San Francisco. My wife Karen has 
just begun her 31st year of teaching at 
Castilleja School, a private girls' school in 
Palo Alto. I am also happy to report contin- 
uing good health as I cruise into the sixties. 
Little did I ever think that the relevance of 
the old Beatle lyrics of "Will you still need 
me, will you still feed me, when I'm sixty- 
four" was just around the corner. 

Be sure to put June 8-10, 2007 on your 
calendar for our 45th reunion. This will be a 
great time to see old friends again, check out 
the changes at Governor's Academy in its re- 
named splendor. Perhaps some of you may 
get together at one of the alumni receptions 
in Washington ( DC)-September 27th; 
Chicago-October 19th; New York-October 
25th; Portland -November 2nd; and San

Robert Farnum writes: "Last fall I led 
two of the four teams of volunteers from 
Yankee Gas to aid the municipal gas compa-

Our first column since GDA morphed 
into The Governor's Academy (TGA??)! 

Exciting news from Jack Gregg who 
reports: "I raced my boat SPIRIT in the 
100th anniversary of the Newport-Bermuda 
Race in June. I had a great crew including 
my son and finished seventh out of 162 boats 
in our fleet. It was a fabulous race — we may 
have to try again in '08 when the biennial 
event next occurs." Congratulations, Jack — 
what a thrilling accomplishment! And 
speaking of personal triumphs, after laboring 
and studying four years part-time at the 
Westin Jesuit School of Theology in 
Cambridge, MA, Chester Parasco passed 
his thesis 'with distinction' and can now 
proudly add S.TL. after his name — his li- 
cense as a theologian of the Catholic 
Church, indirectly a license from the Pope 
himself] I've been privy to Chester's on-go- 
ing scholarship these past few years — in- 
cluding making his oral defense while his fa- 
ther was hospitalized for triple bypass sur- 
gery (a success..) - and plaudits are definite- 
ly warranted! Now he's a divinely inspired 
defender of the Greasie!! 

On a decidedly different note, Don 
Crocker added his thoughts on hearing 
news of President Tim Browne's passing: 
"Just received your note with the sad news 
about Brownie. It is always hard to accept the 
loss of someone too early in life. I was think- 
ing about [The] Governor's Academy today 
and especially about Bart Starr (always Bart 
to me after a year of being his wide receiver 
in many touch football games out behind 
The Cottage), because I was reading Bart's 
'Boomer Files' article in Newsweek... If all 
goes as currently scheduled, by the end of 
August my wife and I will have moved from 
Boston to Newburyport." Thanks for chim- 
ing in, Don and let's hope your move went 
smoothly. You'll be in a prime spot to insure 
your presence at our 2010 Reunion in

Mark Starr's very poignant, delightful and 
insightful retrospective in Nev^sweek, "My

Class of 1966 

James Connolly 

P.O. Box 332 

Newburyport, MA 01950-2646 



Greetings to the Class of 1966. I am 
your new class secretary. My qualifications 
consist largely of having a daughter who just 
finished her sophomore year, so they knew 
where to find me. However, for those of you 
who have not visited the school in a ■while, I 
strongly urge you to do so. Not only is it a 
more civilized place than it used to be, the 
physical plant is impressive. And the 
Pescosolido Library with its windows over- 
looking the playing fields is exquisite. 

My wife Grace and I have a three-attor- 
ney law firm in Newburyport. We have 
three daughters, one at Middlebury, one at 
Florida State, and the youngest one, Camila, 
who is at GDA. For those who loSe count, 
our class celebrated our 40th reunion this 
June. As reunions often are, it was a time of 
reflection. Although our class was not largest 
in the number in attendance, we appeared to 
be the hardiest, closing down most of the ac- 
tivities in the evening. Reunion began on 
Friday with cocktails in the new French 
Student Center, and moved to the dining 
hall for the kind of great buffet that you only 
get as a student on Parents Weekend. For me 
and John Heald, who is an attorney in 
Providence, the idea of retirement is just 
something you read about, sort of like climb- 
ing Mt. Everest. But Tim Maier has actual- 
ly retired, and lives outside of San Francisco. 
He does a lot of fishing, 
mentioning marlin on light 
tackle as a particular fa- 
vorite. Tim releases them af- 
ter capture. In the tradition 
of non sibi sed aliis, he and 
his wife also act as foster 

Our class lingered 
around the table over coffee 
as the dining hall gradually 
emptied out and the tables 
were all cleaned. Finally, 
around 11 p.m., it became 
apparent that we were being 
politely evicted. As the rest 
of us left to go to bed, Maier 
and Heald headed off^ on a 

late night reconnaissance of the campus, ap- 
parently no longer in fear of being appre- 
hended and kicked out of school. Saturday 
was a classic New England summer day, rain- 
ing so hard that the barbeque had to be 
moved inside. Ted Caldwell and his wife 
Jane had driven from New York for the 
weekend, as had Dave Oliker and his wife 
Lynn. Ted is creating specialized education 
curricula for a school district in New York. 
Dave runs MVP Health Plan and he and 
Lynn are preparing for their daughter's wed- 
ding. Dave has been interviewing bands for 
the occasion. (George and Joe Lilly, please 
take note.) Jay Keeler and his wife Regina 
flew in from Michigan, and Dana 
Woodward and his wife Ronna drove down 
from Swampscott. (I say down instead of up 
because Dana is an avid sailor and the pre- 
vailing wind blows north.) 

The evening commenced with drinks 
in the Pescosolido Library. Looking out the 
window over the campus, Tim Maier an- 
nounced that if the library had been there 
when he was a student he might actually 
have spent some time in it. Of course, Tim 
may be prone to fish stories. Dinner con- 
versation involved memories of school. Jay 
Keeler observed that each of us had pieces 
of a puzzle, but the missing members of the 
class made it difiicult to put the puzzle to- 
gether and see the whole picture. After clos- 
ing the dining hall down again, a few of us 
wondered over to the Performing Arts 
Center where there was dancing. The 
Keelers immediately started dancing, fol- 
lowed by the Olikers and the Connollys.

The first Oliker wedding (David, Class of 

1966) of daughter Lorin to Michael Allan 

on July 29, 2006 on Seabrook Island, SC 

As we all took to the dance floor, it was clear 
that our class had a good 30 years on the 
other classes present. Dave and Lynn 
Oliker had met Aretha Franklin somewhere 
and requested an Aretha number, which the 
DJ promptly provided. The DJ was current 
math teacher and former Morse Flag winner 
Ray Long '96, whose talents obviously ex- 
tend beyond academia. As an aside, when my 
daughter learned that Ray Long was there 
for his class reunion, she instructed her 
mother not to do anything to embarrass her. 
If she finds out her mother was on the floor 
of the Performing Arts Center dancing to 
Kanye West's Gold Digger, there is likely to 
be a chilly moment in the ConnoUy house- 
hold. That moment is for future, as is the 
next reunion in five years. 

I also heard from Larry Hilliard, who 

was not able to attend the reunion. Larry is 
married to Mary Helen and is still Public 
Relations Director for the Public 
Employees' Retirement System of 
Mississippi and looking forward to his retire- 
ment in a few years. Larry's second youngest 
(of five), Angela, graduated from high school 
this year and will be entering the Honors 
College at LSU. Larry sent along a photo of 
Angela and her two sisters at her high school 

The reunion proved to be a great time. 
The only disappointment was that more 
members of the class could not make it, but 
we will start planning early for the next one 
in five years.

40th Class Reunion 

June 8, 9, 10, 2007 

Jeff Wood is trying to find a publisher 
for his book. "It's about a small character 
who lives in the stone wall fronting our old 
property," Jefi" explained. "He appears to me 
after a major blizzard to report that the vil- 
lage is planning to widen the road and de- 
stroy the wall. As the wall contains Saracen 
stones, ancient stones with magical proper- 
ties that the Druids worshiped, he states that 
'we' cannot allow that to happen." Jeff 's al- 
ready well into the sequel and all the writing 
is cutting into his fly-fishing. But Jeff did 
manage to get to Puerto Rico in early 2006 
for daughter Cristine's wedding. Her hus- 
band is a Marine Corps captain, and on 
Cristine's birthday, he shipped off to Iraq for 
his second tour for approximately seven 
months, in Anbar Province. Jeff still works as 
director of meetings at the American 
Institute of Chemical Engineers. This year's 
annual meeting in San Fran featured over 
700 sessions and 5200 scientific papers. More 
than 7,000 people attended. 

"I am still thrilled to be living in Byfield 
after all those years in South Florida," reports 
Ward Westhafer. He is an active member of 
Newbury's 375th Anniversary Committee 
and a Newbury Library trustee. Ward recent- 
ly joined The Sons and Daughters of the 

First Settlers of Newbury because his partner 
Barbara is a descendent. Daughter Elizabeth 
is on the dean's list at Palm Beach 
Community College, with a major in busi- 
ness finance and a minor in aviation. "Wayne 
Noel and I plan a fuU turnout of Day Boys 
for next year's reunion," Ward said. "Be 
afraid, be very afraid." 

Speaking of that crowd. Bill 
Haggerty's daughter Erin has moved to 
Nashville with her new fiance, and while the 
Music City is a long way from home, BiU is 
taking comfort in the knowledge that Red 
Sox Nation extends far into the South. 
Chuck Davis, wife Marna, and younger son 
Tyler joined five other families for an unfor- 
gettable two-week trip to South Africa in 
August. Led by the author of Kafiir Boy, who 
grew up in a shanty in Alexandra and yet 
ended up at a U.S. coUege, the group visited 
the cell that housed Nelson Mandela for 
much of his 27 years in prison. They also met 
with Nobel-prize recipient Archbishop 
Tutu. With an eye on June, Chuck wrote, "I 
am really looking forward to our reunion!!" 
Alan Rothfeld has taken up road biking as 
an excuse to tour the beaches every week- 
end, but says it isn't easy keeping up with the 
under-40, spandex-clad crowd. He has con- 
tinued to reduce clinical practice while still 
paying college tuitions. "I am doing more 
administrative things," Alan reports, "and 
have finally developed a semblance of a so- 
cial conscience — shamed into it by Dave 
Marsh, I suppose." He recently became the 
chief medical officer of a large group of non- 
profit clinics that treat uninsured patients. 
"My son William is the starting left tackle for 
Claremont McKenna CoUege, and Jeffirey is 
the center for his high school team," Alan 
says. "Don't ask me where they got it." Bill

Alfond's daughter Kenden recendy com- 
pleted voluntary service in Afghanistan and 
is now in the Congo. "She makes us very 
proud as parents," says Bill, "but also worries 
us a great deal." Always on the lookout for 
ideas for his architectural practice, Paul 
Hemmerich went to Newfoundland last 
summer to see the recreated Viking settle- 
ment that Leif Ericson built about 1000 
years ago and to see some "weird" geology 
on the province's western coast. While home 
in New Hampshire, the Hemmerichs had 
several visits from Barry Davidson, who 
was helping his father move into an assisted 
living unit in Manchester. 

For Jim Nevius, Houston has been 
home away from home most of the fall, 
thanks to a contract with Mustang 
Engineering. "The life of an independent 
consultant/contractor has been interesting, 
and I do not think I could go back to cor- 
porate life," Jim says. His wife, Angela, is 
teaching yoga. Hunter was co-MVP on his 
high school lacrosse team in 2005, while 
Trevor was MVP as a junior in 2006 with 
more than 40 goals and 12 assists. Jim plans 
to attend the reunion. Just back from a 
September camping trip to Maine with the 
eighth grade. Harper Follansbee wrote: 
"For some odd reason, I decided to grow my 
hair long this summer, and I am beginning to 
resemble myself in my later college years. 
Maybe it's the fact that once again we are 
fighting a w^ar that our government got us 
involved in through arrogance, disingenu- 
ousness, outright stupidity, or all of the 
above, or maybe it's just because my wife 
likes me in long hair and going for a pony- 
tail intrigues me at my age, or maybe I've just 
never managed to grow up. Teaching middle 
school can have that effect." Reid Pugh 
gave away his only daughter, Sara, September 
23 at Ingleside Plantation in Oak Grove, 
Virginia. The event was captured on video 
by Rem Clark, who was filming his 33rd 
wedding. Nobody Special was unavailable, so 
a DJ stood in. Rem's son Tyler spent the fall 
in South Africa, as an environmental volun- 
teer in schools.

Belles is easing into retirement, working

son. Russ has been there since the mid- 
1970s, after buying out his father. Russ spent 
about half of last summer at his place in 
Meredith, on the northwestern shore of Lake 
Winnipesauke. Sid Bird, a full-time Granite 
Stater, says that things are great. His 13-year- 
old, Mike, was in Holland last summer on a 
soccer ambassador program. His wife Mary is 
still playing field hockey and competing in 
triathlons. A new racquetbaU ranking system 
has put Sid 615th out of 9,800 U.S. players. 
A business started mostly as a hobby by 
Anne-Marie Laverty in 1994, Shepherds' 
Bush Publications, has just published its 25th 
title. They are divided into three series: rail- 
road stories, Scottish Chaucerians, and John 
Burroughs. As of Labor Day, the operation 
was still in the black, with a net of $52.86. 
Those are Canadian dollars. In passing 
through Customs at Logan, watch for the 
Department of Homeland Security's Andy 
Creed. His daughter, Hannah, has earned a 
BA in media with an emphasis in photogra- 
phy and is gainfully employed in that field. 
Furthering his own education, Andy com- 
pleted a course in small engine mechanics 
and outdoor power equipment — and no 
longer expects to pay princely sums to the 
guy who used to repair his snow blower. 
Perhaps most important, extra time on the 
golf course is starting to pay off, and in 
August Andy said, "Last week, I felt that for . 
the first time in my life, I played golf." 

Gardner Sisk reports that daughter 
Sarah is applying to graduate school so that 
she can get a degree in psychology. He has 

the 40th reunion on his calendar. Bill 
Barnes had some success fishing for tuna last 
summer. He also did a bit of saihng. "The 
business is still growing," says Doug Curtis, 
who produces medical devices in Salem, 
N.H. At home in Newbury, he churns out 
vegetables and reads in the local paper about 
the heroics of Selectman Joe Story. Coming 
home from work one afternoon in July, Joe 
found a guy stealing his griU and toolbox. He 
recovered the property and, as the thief tried 
to drive off, Joe jumped in front of the car. 
For more details, call Joe at 978-9 12- 11 77 or 
sho'w up for our reunion. Rich Brayton's 
son Whit, a student at U.C. Santa Cruz, is 
working on a film project described as a 
"techno thriller" for the Sundance Film 
Festival. Son Dan is a high school junior 
who spent last summer teaching tennis and 
has a girlfriend — so is rarely sighted. 
Thankfully, Rich's design business is doing 
well enough to cover tuition bills for both, 
and he hopes to make it East for the reunion 
(but only if Ted Dix is coming). Ted ap- 
peared in the latest issue ofWilderness mag- 
azine on a page featuring people describing 
their favorite places. Ted's is the Maine coast. 

Wil Poon was back in Hong Kong last 
summer and saw Phil Kan '6 5. Wil is going 
to try to get East for the reunion. Ray 
Huard's oldest son, Jon, got married in 
November, and Spencer expects to do the 
same in 2007. Both joined their father for his 
35th Princeton reunion. Ray's company is 
installing Fieldturf virtually everywhere, it 
seems, including in Harvard Stadium. As of

press time, Bill Dougherty was expecting 
his second granddaughter. In May, his 
youngest child, Andrew, was married to a 
Londoner. Bill is stiU a JP Morgan VP in 
Rochester and does some bike riding to 
work off the local blueberry and peach pies. 
Jeff Forte was in Boston last summer to see 
the Red Sox before their collapse. Rem 
Clark reports that Jeff is so well preserved 
that "he could be a model for AARP." 
Tanner Austin is grandson number five for 
Jeff Harris, whose consulting business has 
been picking up steam. He spent a day in 
Maine over the summer and had "one of 
those surreal days wherein I caught and re- 
leased about 20 salmon." In the "getting old" 
column, Jeff reports that he managed only 
four rounds of golf last summer due to 
shoulder ailments but that recovery has pro- 
gressed to the point that the last outing was

Jim Rudolph was recently elected 
Chairman of the Anti-Defamation League's 
(ADL) New England Regional Board. ADL 
is one of the nation's premier civil rights/hu- 
man relations organizations. It fights racism, 
hatred and all forms of bigotry through pro- 
grams and services. ADL has 32 offices 
worldwide. Jim is also a member of the ADL 
National Executive Committee. 

Chris Page says, "My daughter, Sarah, 
was married to a great guy. Bill Olson, last 
Labor Day weekend (2005). It was a won- 
derful celebration. They live nearby us in 
Beverly. Hope to report soon that the first 
grandchild is on the way." 

Carl Berntsen keeps me informed that 
he is a paralegal legal assistant and enjoys 
running while enjoying life in Rye, New 
York. Rick Kaye-Schiess writes that when 
he called GDA to ask which Governor the 
new school name honored, the first response 
apparendy was "I don't know." Then, after a 

thoughtful pause, "I think it was William 
Dummer." He, however, was a lieutenant 
governor. Rick states that as the past recedes 
with memory, he remains a graduate of 
Governor Dummer Academy. Ned 

Bennett informs me that he is still married 
after 34 years. He is still fishing on Cape 
Cod with his oldest son, has three married 
children and 1-1/4 (you figure it) grandchil- 
dren in Virginia. He has met Hal Levine's 
daughter who is "a breath of fresh air, very 
bright and self-confident" who does not 
mind talking to adults. Hal should be proud. 
Harry Kangis has taken two of his grand- 
children on a Williams College organized 
trip to the Galapagos Islands last August. He 
enjoyed it. 

Art Veasey writes that aU is well in the 
Veasey household. Daughter Helen will be a 
senior at Proctor Academy this year. They 
took a father-daughter college road-trip to 
the Maryland- Virginia area last April and it 
was a terrific experience for him to observe 
the college admissions process. It seems 
much more strategic from both sides than in 
1968 and very informative. His son Bobby is 
a freshman also at Proctor so he and Susan 
will be doing a lot of driving up Route 93 
to Andover, NH for athletic events and oth- 
er Proctor activities. Jim Rudolph invited 
him. Tommy Jacobs, Marc Tucker, Jay 
Worthen, Steve Robinson and C.F. Spang 
to a Red Sox game in June. "We dined in the 
State Street Pavillion at Fenway and saw a 
great game against the Nationals in Jim's ex- 
cellent sky-box seats. A great evening and 
great fun for all of us to be together again." 

This from Stephen B. Murphy - not to 

be confused with Stephen M. Murphy. "My 
note is the class news version of a talk show's 
often heard 'first-time caller, long-time lis- 
tener'. Well, here we go. I reside in northern 
Virginia, just to the west of Washington DC 
where I have been for 30 years plus now. I 
am the fortunate husband of a marvelous 
wife, Noel, and the father of two wondrous 
young women, Caitlin (20) and Corey (18). 
Caitlin will begin her second year at the 
Oberlin Conservatory of Music - she is a vi- 
oHst, and Corey is building a career in cine- 
matography with a decided flair for film ed- 
iting. I am currently director of inside sales 
for a technology firm specializing in infor- 

mational asset security, compliance and reg- 
ulatory requirements such as SOX, GLBA, 
PCI and the like. Over the past several years 
I have led a few sales organizations, all tech- 
nology related, and have enjoyed every mo- 
ment of it. I hope to have the good fortune 
to continue in this line of work for years to 
come... and I had better with two kids work- 
ing in the arts. I've not been back to GDA 
but twice - the first was our 15th reunion 
and the second was in the fall of 1985 when 
Noel and I were wed in Moseley 
Chapel.. .GDA has been the start of many a 
good thing in my life. I look forward to at- 
tending our 40th reunion (Good God!) and 
hope to see many of the Class of '68. I am 
grateful for the work you have done in keep- 
ing the class informed over the 
years... Though a very, very infrequent con- 
tributor I am nonetheless a dedicated reader 
of the class news. How I enjoy reading those 
familiar names, hearing about their lives and 
remembering all of us as such young men. 
Thank you very much for your dedication to 
these updates." 

From Will Black: "I have two things to 
say at this point: firstly, as far as the new name 
for the school, I think we should all just let 
the issue rest, and accept this. Even though 
I had an aversion to it in the beginning, I 
think that 'The Governor's Academy' is just 
about as fitting as any new name could be. 
Also, I'm enjoying working with Ted Brooks 
reviving some of the songs we heard on the 
radio during the dorm years.. .1966-1968. 
The nostalgia is very apparent when I listen 
and connect. It was for sure an innocent time 
in aU of our lives." 

I have had quite the summer. My 
daughter got married in July during the only 
three days in Georgia for June, July and half 
of August where the temperature was below 
90°. We had all of our families in for the 
wedding and had a wonderful time. I am in 
the process of opening a restaurant in the 
town of Canton, Georgia. Its website is It keeps us busy 
and it is a great deal of fun. The guest room 
is still available and now we can even feed 
you better. Keep in touch.

I had an email from Wil Durham re- 
cently who is still living and working in 
Casper, WY. He is starting his 34th year at 
Hilltop National Bank in Casper where he 
has worked since getting his MBA from 
Wharton. Wil and his wife Vikki have three 
children who are rolling through the college 
years. He writes that he spends his spare time 
improving his golf game which he perfects 
on an annual winter golf trip to Palm 
Springs. (It is reassuring to know that Wil's 
nickname "Casper" stiU fits.) 

Tim Termey writes that he saw Peter 
Borneman skiing last February in Vail and 
then went hiking with him in Big Sur, CA. 
Tim says, "It was obvious that we left some 
of our knee cartilage on the playing fields of 
Byfield." Ralf O'Leary took some of his 
money on the golf course recently in

golf instead of lacrosse, there is no telling 
where he would be today.

Jon Williams is living and working 
near Boulder, Colorado where he finds time 
for skiing and water-skiing. His wife, Mary, 
has a successful art gallery in Boulder, often 
traveling the West to museums and art 
shows. His step-daughter, Rosie Wirth, 
works for Johnson & Johnson after an early 
career with Coors.Jon sent in an interesting 
footnote. His father, D. Norton Williams, 
passed away in July. He had actually inter- 
viewed at GDA for the Latin teacher's posi- 
tion the year that Buster was hired, and sub- 
sequently went on to a career in business. 
Having taken early retirement in the mid 
1970s, he was offered a position part time for 
one semester at Choate where he ultimately 
stayed for 15 years, retiring again at 73. He 
was a friend of John Witherspoon and a big 
believer in independent education. He 
helped found the Independent Day School 
in Middlefield, CT Jon writes that "his dad 
loved visits to our lake house from me and 
my classmates at GDA, primarily from my 
'first class' of 1968. His near miss with Old 
Guardhood was a blessing to me and my sib- 
lings, as he would probably not have met my 
mother had he taken the job at GDA!" 

I had a call from Dave McDougall re- 
cently. He and his wife live in Peabody, MA, 
actually not far from where I grew up before 
going off^ to boarding school, at which point 
I became a New Yorker. It was great recol- 
lecting with Dave those days when Joe 
Lilly's band was the highlight of the mixers 
we had with various girls' schools. I think 
Dave was the equipment manager for a' 
while. I somehow recall a gig that Joe's band, 
StiU at Large, had at Dana HaD for a mixer 
with some other boys' school. The dance was 
in a small room that the girls had decorated 

Peter Bragdon, Jeflf Gordon '69, and Josh 
Miner '69 on a recent fishing trip to King 

& Bartlett in Maine 

with aluminum foil lining the walls. Our 
volume was never modest, but the vibrating 
walls were enough for Mrs. Taylor, the 
Headmistress, to request and then order us to 
turn down the volume on multiple occa- 
sions. Finally, not having been satisfied that 
we heard her request, she asked the band to 
leave. (Our first legitimate job, and we were 
fired!) All I remember about what happened 
next was that we members of the band were 
driven by Joe's parents' driver, Mr. McGrath, 
into Boston for the weekend, but we left the 
equipment in the good hands of Dave 
McDougall. Not sure if we ever properly 
thanked you, Dave.

until "Monsieur Jean Clement" suggested 
we go over to a nearby restaurant in 
Newburyport, which we did, some for a

I took over as the Chair of The Association 
of Boarding Schools last year. I would like to 
share with my classmates that in my opinion 
the name change will in the LONG RUN 
serve GDA's interests. Teens have much more 
sway over picking schools than ever before; 
'Dummer' just does not work for them, 
whether we like that notion or not. It is a 
great school and deserves the best." 

Cricket Littlefield writes: "Work keeps 
me hopping. I've got one daughter at 
Skidmore (must be one of the most expen- 
sive schools around) and one in kinder- 
garten. Quite a spread (two different mar- 
riages) For most of the last 30 years, I've 
been living on Martha's Vineyard. Presently 
building custom houses or renovating them, 
occasionally designing them and all too in- 
frequently creating art work/sculpture." 
Finally Russ Ethridge writes: "Life here is 
good. Lawyers like me can make a living 
when there is industrial turmoil like there is 
now in the domestic auto industry. When 
there are fights over money and power, you 
can be sure the American way is to have your 
warrior beat the bejesus out of the other 
guy's, aU at our regular hourly rates. The way 
I see it, it is better than hand to hand com- 
bat or, in Detroit at least, small arms combat.

June 8, 9, 10, 2007 

Chris Swenson writes that he spent 
another gorgeous summer in Seattle. He just 
put his daughter on the plane to college. She 
is off to Harvard! He adds those genes must 
skip a generation. Chris is teaching a new 
class on Improvisation at the Seattle 
University this fall. He is still touring his 
solo show Human Jazz in the U.S. and 
Canada. Michael Driscoll has launched a 
new trade show called the HD World 
Conference and Exposition, this November 
29 and 30 at the Javits Convention Center. 
Dan Rather and David HiU are expected to 
be the keynote speakers. In his spare time, 
Mike formed a band named "Mass 
Distraction" which plays classic rock covers 
including the Allman Brothers, Grateful 

Dead, Rolling Stones, country and rock. 
Tunk Hosmer took a visit to GDA in July. 
It was his first visit since 1972. What a nice 
place to go to school. He's wondering if he 
goes back to school, will he still have to take 
a foreign language. Dicken Crane says hi to 
all our classmates. He is sorry to see the 
school change the name. He feels when we 
went to Governor Dummer it was fuU of in- 
dividual kids with enough strength of char- 
acter that they could tell people they went to 
Governor Dummer. He is afraid it has be- 
come a school sought by people looking for 
a mold with an acceptable name to produce 
an acceptable student. This is not the people 
with whom he went to school and does not 
see them as his class mates. 

Robert Murphy writes that he got my 
note and realized neither I nor the school 
has his updated information He has moved 
and his new address is 8 MiUpond, North 
Andover, MA 01845. Kids are both in col- 
lege; he's changed from the banking world to 
a credit union doing the same type of work 
but with a less high-pressured atmosphere 
and is getting married in a couple of days. 
(This was sent 9/6). His other contact in- 
formation is below. Bob Murphy, AVP, 
Merrimack Valley Federal Credit Union,, 1-800-

Cynthia and I are enjoying trips three times 
a year that are partly for vacation, and partly 
for scouting for a retirement location. I'm 
20 lbs down and 85 to go in getting Weight 
Watcher's support in a permanent lifestyle 
change to support an 'ideal' weight. I am

a Strategic Service Management company 
providing software and services to the after-

Altogether, life is busy and rich!"

As for me, Geoff Durham, I retired 
from Allstate three weeks short of my thirty- 
year anniversary on May 31, 2006. I have 
very much enjoyed the summer off. My 
daughter Andrea went off to college this fall 
so we are now empty nesters, too. My wife 
Jana still spends her time volunteering for 
the Girl Scouts. I still volunteer in the ER 
at the local hospital once a week. It is quite 
interesting to be behind the scenes in the 
ER. My parents now live in Barrington, II, 
so I see them a lot and help them out. Our 
35th reunion is next year so mark your cal- 
endars for a return visit.

Ian Chisholm missed the last Archon 
but writes: "I'm going on a Wild Boar hunt 
in Tennessee, April 6-10. These are Russian 
Boars that weigh up to 500 pounds and 
are ill-tempered. They have the second 
worst bite of any mammal on the 
planet (after the killer whale) and can run 30

to hunt from a tree stand to improve 
my odds of surviving this trip." Adolf

Lisa Johnson writes that her hfe is 
wonderfully hectic with her family and ex- 
tended family. Her 50th birthday is quickly 
approaching but she doesn't expect to slow 
down any. At least she hopes she won't as she 
would never get to everything that is to be 
done. John Harrington is enjoying retire- 
ment with wife Janette and son Justin. Justin, 
their adopted son from Korea, is six years old 
and in first grade, enjoys Tae Kwan Do, and 
is a most welcomed member of the family. 
Janette is active playing racquetball, creating 
greeting cards and keeping John busy. In ad- 
dition to doing those things Janette asks of 
John, he is back into the bicycle racing. He 
says he has faced the fact that at 49 he is just 
a little slower than the 22-year-olds! 
Stephanie Farrar is staying busy working 
on their Victorian home. She also has 

achieved a great deal of success with her 
gourmet doggie cookie and cat nip business. 
Steph also is active in local civics and enjoys 
entertaining her many friends on her won- 
derfully accommodating wrap-around 

Mike Sapuppo spent six months last 
year working for a local non-profit housing 
developer. He said that this was just long 
enough to qualify for health insurance ben- 
efits and fund the maximum 2005 and 2006 
contributions to a 403b retirement plan! 
However, Mike got bored pretty quickly. He 
vows to only pursue jobs in the private, for- 
profit sector in the future. This out of the 
mouth of this self-professed "hard core capi- 
talist"! After his six-month stint, he managed 
to spend a week in March snowboarding 
with friends at Snowbird. Then there was a 
week on Kauai in April, another week in a 
Sequoia National Forest family camp in 
June, and yet another week in July on 
Mission Bay in San Diego while his daugh- 
ter attended camp at Sea World. Whew! And 
if that isn't enough, the family hoped to 
spend a week at Lake Tahoe before school 
started in late August. Mike also coached the 
girls' Softball team last spring and took his 
daughter to see the Red Sox win over the 
Oakland Athletics in late July where she 
managed to get Jon Papalbon's autograph on 
a sign that read "Hurt the ball. Red Sox". 
And Mike had his work cut out for him try- 
ing to keep her from 'baiting' the Oakland 
fans! A chip off the old block!!! 

Jim O'Donnell is busy as his daughter 
is now in her senior year and embarking on 
the college search. They have taken a trip 
with many stops but no favorites yet. Jim's 
son is immersed in sports which means they 
spent the summer traveling around to vari- 
ous baseball tournaments. While Jim says al- 
though he hasn't made the most of reunions 
due to conflicts, he has fond memories of his 
time at GDA. Maybe Jim will make it to the 
35th! Mike Ponce says there's nothing new! 
However, he reports that his girls are grow- 
ing up fast. Annie is nine and Lindsay is 
three. Mike turned 50 years old this year and 
has realized that he'll be paying tuition until 
he's 70! Peter Richardson reports that af- 
ter 22 years with Keybank, he joined RM 
Davis in May. This is a Portland-based inde- 
pendent investment advisory firm where he 

is now the VP-Portfolio Manager. 
Congratulations on that, Peter. And as an 
added bit of fate, among the many capable 
managers at the firm is Brian Noyes from the 
Class of 1976. They are in offices right next 
to each other! Peter's oldest son, Bennett, 
graduated from Colgate University last 
spring and is now working in Washington, 
DC for GMA/IB, a political consulting firm. 
And other than all that, things are great in 
Cape Elizabeth, Maine. And Joel Narva, 
Peter has asked about you. 

Steve Dunfey said he thought it about 
time he responded to one of these requests 
for notes! Thanks, Steve! He reports that at 
the time he responded he happened to run 
into Ed Gage on the streets of Portsmouth. 
They spent the afternoon catching up on lo- 
cal politics, goings-on, and all things GDA. 
Steve is currently booking entertainment for 
a local agency that specializes in weddings, 
corporate events, fairs, and festivals. He has 
also been free-lance writing for the past 15 
years, occasionally for Modern Drummer 
Magazine, although he no longer plays the 
drums. He also writes about local non-prof- 
it and arts organizations as well as profiles of 
community leaders for various New 
Hampshire publications. He is still involved 
in politics but reserves most of his spare time 
to serve on the board of directors of the 
Seacoast Mental Health Center and for ac- 
tivities in the arts community where he just 
completed two terms on the board of the 
New Hampshire Art Association. Upon his 
mother's death in 1998, he established the 
Joan Dunfey Annual Art Competition which 
honors her commitment to the arts. This 
competition is held every October at the 
Robert Lincoln Levy Gallery in 
Portsmouth. This is a juried competition 
with financial awards to the top three artists 
and is open to all. Anyone visiting the sea- 
coast is welcomed to contact Steve at scdun-

And, as for your class secretary, I have 
spent the last several months working on the 
house designing and supervising the addition 
of a "farmer's porch". We also had the house 
and garden shed painted which turned out 
to be a huge task. The bad weather was a 
hindrance to timely completion. I have been 
gardening a lot and generally taking care of 
all the attendant chores of home ownership! 
I have stayed away from tax law... one might 
say I have retired from my practice! Rob is 
so busy (still on a tax season schedule and 
coming into another), we haven't had time 
to travel much. We do, however, hope to get 
to Las Vegas to see a couple of Cirque du 
Soleil shows as well as all the other amusing 
sights in sin city!

Thank you, Joey! Anyone else out there

First and foremost, I'U begin with me, 
because I can. On Monday, Sept. 11th, my 
wife Stephanie and I had the pleasure of tak- 
ing the inaugural drive, all seven-and-a-half 
miles of it, to the Academy for the first day 
of classes for our son Andrew. So far he loves 
everything about it. I'm just waiting for the 
first day he comes home ranting and raving 
about how much homework he has and de- 
manding I speak in iambic pentameter. He 
has the dubious distinction of being in the 
first class with the new name. Interestingly, in 
his first week, he met a new student from 
Mississippi. That brings me back to when I 
also met a new student from Mississippi my 
first week. Cedric, where are you? 

The campus looks great. We were told 
there would quite a bit of construction in 
the next year as they are building a new 
hockey rink, new dorm and an artificial turf 
athletic field. Andrew and I had the honor 
of joining Henry Rosen in his suite at the 
BankNorth Garden for Summer Slam, the 
Pro Wrestling extravaganza. Hulkamania is 
alive and well. Since H was a cross country 
star and my son is just beginning the sport, 
maybe he can teach my son some of the ma- 
neuvers used by the likes of big name 
wrestlers John Cena and Hulk Hogan. These 
moves could be quite effective to gain a 
competitive edge while running in the

Andy has also filed a patent with the US 
Patent office which he hopes will pay off. 
Also, Andy is saddened that his record in the 
4x100 relay was broken this past spring. He 
should be proud that it did take 26 years to 
break it. Andy has asked that the runners be 
tested for performance enhancing drugs. I'U

weeks and stayed with James' family. It was 
a great experience for three American 
teenagers. This summer was the 25th an- 
niversary of that trip and it worked out nice- 
ly for me to be able to stop by and visit James 
and his family again. James Horatanachai, 
corporate sales director for United Airlines 
in Thailand, ensured that I stayed in five-star 
hotels and ate the finest Thai 
food. One evening, James or- 
ganized for Pong Suksangium '81 to have

GDA days.

"You'll be happy to know that I just put up

As for me, Nancy Wickwire, thank 
you, Sandy Keyes, for all the extensions of 
deadline for Archon notes. The extra 10 days 
gave me plenty of time to procrastinate. 
Here's my big news: I dropped a table on my 
foot after church yesterday and had four 
stitches, two crutches and a prescription for 
Vicodan (which, after last night, I now will 
take ONLY before bed). I'm home from 
work today which is the primary reason 
Sandy will get these notes from me today - 
the new, extended, final, final, no more ex- 
cuses deadline! Other than my left foot, 
everything is great. We moved to a different 
house in the same town in late April. This 
one has a pool, which we made use of near- 
ly every day this summer! My oldest, Ed, 
has started sixth grade at the middle school. 
Layla is in third grade. Vinnie, our dog, is not 
in school. He has, however, earned his OED 
(Obedience Equivalence Degree) by having 
us yell "get OFF the couch!" repeatedly over 
the last three years. Now, he knows just to 
go on the couch while we are at work.

Greetings from beautiful New 
England! It has been an interesting weath- 
er year here, as in other places around the 
globe. We've seen record rains, . a cold 
spring and a very mild summer. It is now 
mid-September and the temperature is in 
the eighties today - unbelievably gorgeous 
for this time of year. It has been a while 
since I've submitted notes for the class, so 
my apologies to those -who are getting 
their news shared well beyond its submis- 
sion time! Kim Grillo Burgess and hus- 
band Jay adopted a son, Cameron 
Anthony, in June of 2005. They are 
thrilled! Congratulations! Betsy Tuthill 
Farrell writes that she is still busy at home 
with her four kids, Patrick (10), Maggie (7), 
Matthew (6) and Anna (2). She is enjoying 
some well-deserved doAvn time with three in 
school fuU time these days! Hank Friedman 
is still in Taos, NM and wrote that he en- 
joyed the best ski season there in 10 years. 
He is in his tenth season as a soccer coach at 
Taos High School, having recently moved 
from the girls' to the boys' team. He writes 
that he saw Joy and Mike MulMgan '71 this 
past April in CA, and they are both great. 

Bill Tempel is doing well in Redondo 
Beach, CA. He has just opened a new up- 
scale restaurant there called Harbor Drive 
where he is the Executive Chef. He is living 
happily in Los Angeles, and has enjoyed 
teaching Garde Manger at Le Cordon Bleu 
in Pasadena and the Art Institute-Los 
Angeles as well as being an Executive Chef 
for Hilton Hotels for the past five years. Bill 
has been working as an Exec Chef for seven 
years now and writes: "Before taking on the 

new restaurant, I took a hiatus from the food 
world and worked on a movie called Splinter 
with Tom Sizemore and Edward James 
Olmos. I enjoyed it!" He sends his best to the 
class and promises to stay in touch! John 
Barton is doing well — married, five kids and 
a mortgage! He writes: "Hope all is well 
with others in the class." 

As for me, Cathleen Riley Scerbo, my 
life continues along as the boys grow closer 
to GDA days of their own (hopefully!). Sean 
is 12 now and starting seventh grade. He 
loves baseball and spent a week at 
Coopersto^vn this sum- 
mer at the Dream Park 
with a local team. He 
absolutely loved it! 
Drew is 10 and in 5th 
grade. He just made the 
travel soccer team and 
plays goalie quite a bit - 
just like his mom did! I 
give him tips here and 
there, when I can re- 
member anything valu- 
able to share! Ryan is 
eight and in third grade 
this fall. He too is play- 
ing soccer, enjoying the 
"big field" this year. 
Drew and Ryan also 
enjoyed a week of bas- 
ketball camp at GDA 
this summer. It was great to see the new fa- 
cilities in action! Dan and I will celebrate 
our 15th wedding anniversary this fall and 
are happily signed up for at least another 15 
more! The whole family has also started Tae

everybody. It has now been a year since 
Hurricane Katrina and New Orleans has 
made some important progress but there is 
still so much to be accomplished. Living 
here is like a tale of two cities: one half, the 
French Quarter, Garden District, downtown 
and university areas which are fully recov- 
ered and thriving; the other half (really the 
other 75 percent) much the same way it was 
after the storm cleared. You can drive for 
miles (literally miles) through formerly vi- 
brant neighborhoods of every economic and 
racial group and not see any sign of life, no 
people, no trees (the salt water and petrole- 
um spills killed most of them), no grass, roads 
still covered in mud and debris, cars still in 
trees and on rooftops, and no sign of renova- 
tion or repair. The houses have been left to 
grow mold and fall apart because the owners 
either have not returned or if they are back, 
do not want to spend money to renovate and 
repair in the current state of uncertainty that 
pervades every aspect of life here at the mo- 
ment. Whenever someone visits me they al- 
ways tell me how^ everything looks so great 
and the city seems entirely back to normal. 
An hour driving tour through Lakeview, Old 
Metairie and the Ninth Ward is like a visit to 
another world and most people have a hard 
time taking in what they see. All of that said. 
New Orleans is really ready to receive visi- 
tors and show off its southern charm once 
again, so please come visit or encourage your 
trade organization or company to have a 
meeting or retreat down here. If New 

Orleans is going to make it, tourism must vi- 
talize our economy again. I would love to 
see all of you. David Starensier and his 
lovely wife visited for Jazz Fest this Spring. 
Dave looks great and still has the same hap- 
py disposition. He lives in Aspen, Colorado. 
My best to everyone." 

Anthony Fusco reports: Paul Nardone 
and I had dinner with Steve Bucknall in 

Newburyport in July. Steve was in town in 
connection with a basketball camp held at 
The Governor's Academy. Steve is married 
to a former Greek professional basketball 
player and he and his wife have two children. 
With those genes, I imagine that the re- 
cruiters are already calling." 

I have been busy with work! I am still 
enjoying the real estate business in Chicago. 
I have also been working on my final plans 
for a coffee house and retail space in Mesa, 
Colorado. It has been a fun and challenging 
process. I hope to break ground within the 
month. I also have a vacation rental in Mesa. 
You can view it at www.mesacreekcot- Family life is great. Laura is al- 
ready 12 years old and is in seventh grade

20th Class Reunion 

June 8, 9, 10, 2007 

80 The Archon -* FaU 2006 

We hope everyone had a fantastic sum- 
mer and has been enjoying the fall so far. 
Some nice updates to report: 

Just in the nick of time for The Archon 
deadline (good planning there), Greg and 
Paula (McCarthy) Haas welcomed their 
third daughter, Emily Meghan, on 
September 8. The new parents and big sis- 
ters, Kate (5) and Ally (3), are all doing well. 
Jen Killion emailed: "What have I been up 
to? After many different career starts and 
stops, I finally found my calling. I'm a para- 
medic and have been working on both an 
ambulance and in an ER. I've just gotten 
hired as a firefighter/paramedic and wiU start 
the state fire academy in mid-May — a little 
daunting at 37 but I'm pretty determined. 
Five years ago I landed in the great Pacific 
Northwest (in the Seattle area), and doubt 
I'U ever leave. I do a lot of kayaking, back- 
packing, rock climbing, etc and the climate 
and environment here are perfect for that. I 
still make it back to New England every year 
and hopefully will be able to attend reunion 
next year. On the more personal side, my 
husband and I divorced six years ago - no 
kids. I'm now with a fellow paramedic, but 
we've both decided that between our 
lifestyles (24-hour shifts) and our ages (he's 
43), kids probably aren't in our future, so 
we're looking for a dog. J 'Hi' to everyone." 

Tom Jansen emailed: "Hi everyone. 
On March 18, 2006 Thomas Gray Jansen was 
born - 8 lbs. 3 oz. He is gigantic now. 211bs. 
at almost five months. Have a great fall 
everyone, Tom or Duper..." Lisa Taplin 
Murray writes: "I just wanted to add baby 
#2 to the record here. Jacob Thomas Murray 
was born on April 27, 2005. (Grandfather is 
Thomas Taplin '61. He just turned one 
and is quite the mellow dude. He hangs out 
with Lisa Carrigg's Caralena when we're 
down in Mass. but otherwise he's crawling all 
over his older brother Sean up here on 
Mount Desert Island, Maine. Oh! One of 
Sean's classmates at Montessori preschool has 
a former GDA teacher for a dad... small 
world. I'm still plugging away one class at a 
time in my quest for my Master's in Library 
and Information Studies." Lisa also said she 
is planning on being at the 20th with her 
family... How that snuck up already is be- 
yond me... 



Buzz Crocker said he'll be there too: 
"Attached is a picture of my wife Jennifer 
and me on our Los Angeles vacation March 
2006. I am an operations manager at 
IntraVex shipping technologies in down- 
town Chicago. I am expected to receive my 
MBA in Finance from DeVry University in 
April 2007. I look forward to seeing my 
classmates at the 2007 20-year reunion and 
maybe getting a chance to play the drums 
again." Ann (Blair) Silvers writes: "It has 
been a busy year for us. In January my hus- 
band, Jonathan, started a job with JP Morgan 
Chase in Ne'wark, Delaware. He left me and 
the girls - Samantha (6) and Kaitlyn (3)- for 
two-and-a-half months to start his job while 
I stayed behind to sell our house in Phoenix. 
We moved to SW New Jersey in April. We 
are very happy to be back on the east coast 
and to be done with Phoenix. We had been 
wanting to come back closer to family for a 
long time and finally found the right oppor- 
tunity. While doing all this packing and 
moving I was pregnant with our third (and 
final!) child. Our son, Stephen Jacob, was 
born July 31, one week late! He is a won- 
derful addition to our family and we are glad 
to be nearer to grandparents, uncles, aunts 
and cousins. Here's a picture of the little guy. 
It has been a hectic time for all of us but we 
are settling into our new home and the girls 
are liking their new neighborhood. 
Samantha will start first grade in September 
and Kaitlyn will resume preschool then too. 

Stephen Silvers, son of Ann Blair Silvers '87 

I am staying at home with the baby, but 
keeping quite busy. I haven't been in touch 
with classmates, but do hope to get together 
with Allison Richard at the end of August. 
Hope you are well." 

Chris McMorris wrote: "I became 
partner in my company, JRP Historical 
Consulting LLC, this summer. I have 
been ■with the firm since ■we moved

and helping run a few other non-profits. 
Anyone with questions about energy should 
feel free to contact me." 

We haven't figured out who gets to be 
the "I" in this class secretary team. We seem 
to alternate and I (Amy) won the coin toss 
this time. So, with that said, here is Kristen 
Poulin's update: "Thilo and Lucy 
(Armstrong) Henkes welcomed their third 
boy last winter! Baby Rowan arrived on 
February 10, 2006 to join his big brothers 
Willem (3) and Colin (2). Lucy reports that 
all is well, just a bit busy! Hopefully, I will 
get a chance to see Lucy, as WiUem and my 
son, Sam, are in preschool together this year. 
And, while at a concert at Odion Point in 
Rye, N.H. this summer with Paula Haas, I 
ran into Pam (Chase) Paradee. Pam and 
her kids were visiting with her sister Becky 
who lives in the area. Pam, please check in 
with an update." 

As for me, Amy Northup, we had our 
second daughter, Elizabeth Anne Northup 
(Ellie) April 7. She joins her big sister 
Charlotte, who is, somehow, two-and-a-half 
already. Charlotte loves her little sister and 
EUie adores Charlotte. She has begun to 
laugh at almost everything Charlotte does, 
and is the perfect audience at five months 
old. And our lab, Murray, enjoys Ellie too. 
We were on Block Island for most of July 
and had a fantastic time. Both girls loved the 
beach, which made for a great vacation. I am 
heading back to work three days/week this 
fall, but have really loved having the summer 

Thank you so much to all who emailed, 
wrote and sent pictures. We hope everyone 
else is well and look forward to hearing firom 
you soon... and seeing you next June at our 
20th Reunion!

It is always nice to be able to share news 
of the class of 1989, so much thanks to those 
of you who wrote in or contacted me with 
an update. Kevin Lydon wrote a while back 
when he was motivated to write after read- 
ing the Spring issue of The Archon: "My 
wife Amy and I just had our second child - 
Jake Samuel. His sister Grace (almost two) 
has been great with him and is quite ener- 
getic, which for Amy and me is exhausting 
but a lot of fun. We are moving back to 
Eastern MA. We bought a home in Rowley, 
MA (actually right down the street from the 
Agawam Diner - and yes, I have spent a few 

82 The Archon «=« Fall 2006 

mornings there with the kids). We actually 
will be in Rowley fuU time in mid-June." 
Kevin went on to say hi to everyone and 
wanted to congratulate Rob Wattle on his 
wedding. Kevin, thanks for writing in and 
stay in touch as there are many of us in the 
area who I am sure would love to see you 
soon. I was also pleased to hear from John 
Hellerman who wrote:"! don't have much 
to report other than my wife Stephanie and 
I are enjoying Washington, DC a lot. We are 
especially having fun hanging out with our 
10- month-old daughter, Alissa (Ali for 
short) ."John included a photo and Ali is ab- 
solutely adorable. 

Lindsey Curley's mother wrote to 
give an updated address for Lindsey and let 
me know that she is still living in England. 
Lindsey, write in and let us know how life is 
treating you in England and update us on 
what you are doing there. Jessica Clapp 
got engaged last spring to her soon-to-be 
husband, Richard Hennessy (who grew up 
down the street firom Jessica in Ipswich but 
the two did not meet until they were both 
living in Stowe,VT — what a small world!). 
Her wedding will be next June in the 
Adirondacks and GDA will be well repre- 
sented as Jenn (Ashare) Shinsky is the ma- 
tron of honor, Ashley Newbert is the maid 
of honor, and I am one of the bridesmaids. 
Congratulations, Jessica! Jenn (Ashare) 
Shinsky has exciting news of her own. She 
and her husband Russ welcomed a son, Ian, 
to their family last spring. I am looking for- 
ward to meeting him soon. Ashley also has 
news to share. After many years living in 
Rhode Island, Ashley recently returned to 
the Newburyport area which I am thrilled 
about and hope to see her more often now 
that she is on the North Shore. Moving in 
the other direction — away from 
Massachusetts, Rob Wattle and his wife 
Betsy and son Robbie recently moved down 
to South Carolina. Although many of us up 
here in the north are sad to see him go, I 
know Chuck Khan is happy to have Rob 
nearby as they will certainly be seeing each 
other as Rob will be living temporarily in 
Chuck's parents home in the Charleston area 
until his own home is ready. 

Rick Fox reports: "Jen and I continue 
to live in Jackson, Wyoming, and I continue 
my descent through the infernal rings of our 
federal bureaucracy (the US Forest Service, 
that is), leading the Bridger-Teton National

Forest's effort to revise its land management 
plan. But it's all so unimportant now, be- 
cause on August 4th our first child was born: 
Stella Marjory Daniels Fox... 6 lbs. 9 oz. of 
gurgling bubbling babyness with a fuU head 
of hair and a penchant for karate kicks and 
stern lectures to her parents. She can already 
support her weight on her two legs and hold 
her head up, so she'll 

be skiing in no time (she's already 
skied some double-black runs, in fact, in 
utero). If any of you ever find yourselves 
headed to Jackson, do drop me a line at rick-" 

Matt Downing and his wife Sarah had 
a son, Andrew, in April. They had a going- 
away party for Rob a little while ago at 
which I was able to catch up with many oth- 
er GDA alums including Rob and Tammy 
Ashworth who are currently living in the 
Marlboro area with their two kids and lov- 
ing it. Dan Nadeau was there with his 
adorable four-year-old twin daughters and 
Derek VanVllet and his wife and two kids 
were there as well. It seems as if many of us 
are busy with family, jobs and moves and we 
rarely have time to think back to our high 
school years. It is certainly hard to believe 
that we graduated 17 years ago! However, I 
know we all enjoy catching up on each oth- 
ers' lives so don't wait to get the next letter

Maggie and I welcomed Theodora "Teddie" 
Teagan Yeagley into the world in April of 
2005 and she has just been pure joy. 
Surprise, Surprise — parents that love their 
kids. We live in Vienna, VA with our two 
dogs. Ranger and Bruin, where I run feder- 
al sales for a software company and Maggie 
just started her own consulting firm. I am 
fortunate to be able to keep up with Kyrie

Kim Roark Trumble reports: "I work 
as the Graduate Admissions Officer for the 
College of Social Work at the University of 
Kentucky and teach Accounting and Math at 
Spencerian College. My husband Gary and 
I are celebrating our fourth anniversary this 
month." David Smith says, "It is amazing to 
think we graduated that long ago. I want to 
hear from Paul McNeil Penick the III. I 
also want to hear from Joe "Big Green" 
Crowley, Jason "Guido" Male and Bill 
"Meat" Evans. My wife Kate and I are hav- 
ing a great time with our four-month-old 
son TtUer Mcllvain Smith. Chad Harlow 
and his wife Kristen are expecting a child in 
November. I am going to the wedding of 
Jason Harlow on Sept 30. 1 saw John 
Hellerman '89 at a GDA function back 
when they were considering the name 
change. The image of him hurdling off 
Ingham hill on a sled is permanently burned 
on my retinas." 

The Class of 1990 has more great news 
to report. Congratulations to Kathryn 
DiNanno Barbieri who welcomes a beau- 
tiful baby boy, Nicholas Gerard. Kathryn 
also writes: "Grayson also had her third, a 
baby girl named Brooke, and bought a new 
home, but is still in the same town, so we see 
each other several times a week. My Anna 
and her WiD are best buds which is so cute. 
Kerry Campbell Morrison had another 
baby boy earlier this summer named 
Campbell. That's the only updates that I 
know of." Greetings to and from Mr. Paul 
Salemme who says, "I have just returned 
from Las Vegas and had an absolute blast out 
there. I went on the stratosphere which is 
the craziest ride ever created and watched 
the UFC. Those guys are absolutely crazy. I 

also had the pleasure of spending time in 
Chicago visiting my college friends, watch- 
ing the depressing Cubs and partying in 
WrigleyviUe. Now, I am gearing up for ski 
season and I hope we have a lot of snow at 
KiDington. I wish everyone the best." And 
Glenn Johnson writes that he "bought a 
house here in Greenfield, MA last year and 
am enjoying home ownership. Have a ne'w 
job doing community planning with people 
with HIV and their service providers in 
Western Mass. Continuing to take acrobat- 
ics class at a circus arts school in Brattleboro,

June was a busy month for GDA news. 
(GA just doesn't have the same ring, does it?) 
Our 15th reunion was held on a soggy 
weekend at the beginning of the month. I 
was only able to attend Friday evening 
where it was great to see some old friends 
and meet spouses and catch up. It seems that 
attendance was spaced throughout the 
weekend and ■while our numbers weren't 
that high it seems some of you had some 
good excuses. Four of you were welcoming 
new children into the world very close to- 
gether and all daughters too! 
Congratulations go to: Brian Novelline 
and his wife Kristen who welcomed their 
second daughter, Lila Anderson, on June 8th; 
Lindsey Miller Boden and her husband 
Michael who welcomed their first child, a 
daughter, Piper Meigs, on June 21st; 
Stephen Aron and his wife Nicole who 
welcomed their first child, a daughter, 
Gabrielle, on June 22nd; and Leslie McCant 
Lacy and her husband who welcomed a sec- 
ond daughter, Lindsey Nicole, on April 8th. 

Anita Sweeny Abuin wrote: "What a 
busy summer this has been! The first Sunday 
in June I received my MBA from UMass 
Lowell, the next Friday I attended our 15th 
reunion (great to see everyone) and then two 
days later, my fiancee (Jason) and I jetted off 
to Las Vegas and were married at Red Rock 
Canyon. What a year!" Brian Novelline 
says, "Unfortunately, I didn't make it out to 
the 15th reunion this summer as that was the 
same weekend our second daughter, Lila, was 
born. However, I did make it out to 
Baltimore a few weeks earlier for a GDA 
wedding. Andrew Tanton married Jayne 
Barrett on May 20 with Dave Corbett, Bob 
Graff and Dave Graichen ripping it up on 
behalf of The Governor's Academy." 
Congratulations to Anita and Jason. Billy 
Batchelder and Catherine just moved back 
from California and they are expecting their 
third child. Shaun Toomey married recent-

currently living in Boston (South End) and 
working in Canton as a Brand Manager for 
Dunkin' Donuts. I see Phil Gatchell and 
Jason 'Big' Uttam regularly, but want to see 
more of my classmates !" Lindsey (Miller) 
Boden reports: "I had a baby girl in June 
named Piper. (I have attached a photo). My 
husband and I are enjoying parenthood 
down in PhiUy. I am still working in admis- 
sions - testing children who are applying to 
private schools and school placement con- 
sulting. I miss Boston (and the ocean) so 
much but the cheese steaks are a lot better 
here than at that dive in Newburyport that 
we used to go to (wish I could remember

various ways, but has hit the jackpot as he 
and his wife Eunice announced that they are 
expecting their first child next spring, so 
congratulations are in order for them as well! 
It has been a fuU and busy summer, I am 
happy to have old friends back on the East

San Francisco and have bought a house in

It's been a busy season for the Class of 
1992. I was happy to hear from so many of 
you this time around! Here's the news ... 
Judy Livingston Loto is still enjoying Hfe in 
New Hampshire. She and Frank welcomed 
a daughter, Somer Rose, on April 30th. 
Somer joins her sister Skye Elisabeth and is 
keeping her parents on their toes. Judy 
works as a consulting director for a small 
museum in the Lakes Region, and is finding 
time to enjoy her growing family! Sally 
Simpkins graduated from BU Law School 
in May, and started working for Sullivan & 
Worcester in Boston this fall. After a sum- 
mer full of travel including Missoula, 
Montana and Glacier National Park, Sally's 
ready to get back to work. She is hving on 
Beacon Hill. Grace Jeanes has completed 
her three-year term as Alumna Trustee of 
GDA, and passes the torch to Cathy 
Burgess '91. While on the board, Grace was 
a member of the Diversity, Development & 
Community Life Committees. In other 
news, she'll be selling her animal care service 
business, House Checks, in January, and will 
celebrate with a trip to Wales. 

Mark Foster has moved to Bellingham, 
MA. He and his wife Stacy have an 18- 
month-old baby girl and another due in late 
February/early March. Patrick Gervais is 
enjoying his two children, Laurie (5) and 
Mathis (2). No word on who is the better 
hockey player yet! Patrick is already hyping 
our next reunion: he's committed to making 
the trip across the border, and hopes that 
many will join in the celebration. Also look- 
ing forward to Reunion is Joe Kirsch, who 
will be married by press time! He and 
Callan will be wed on Long Island and will 
honeymoon in Saint Lucia. Wedding bells 
are ringing all over the place ... Michael 
Holbrook married Lisa-Marie on May 6th 
and hopes to begin a family soon! I've just 
returned from a weekend in Manchester, 
Vermont for Tyler Maheu and Dianna 
Townsend's wedding. Wedding guests in- 
cluded some Archon-shy folks including 
Pete Mooney, Steve and Chris Peabody, 
Gus Mergins, Nick LaPierre, and Steve 
Scully, as well as Nicole Maheu '94. 

Joe Kirch reports: "Getting married 
October 28, 2006 on Long Island to Callan 
Case, looking forward to an exciting wed- 
ding and long honeymoon in St. Lucia. Still 
working as a consultant in the web and

wife Alisha are deep into their new role as 
parents. Kiera Alexander was born on June 
5, 2006. Ted has just earned his MBA from 
the University of Florida and is enjoying 
working in sales for IBM. Toby Harris says, 
"I graduated from GDA in 1992, my name is 
Toby Harris and I would like everyone to 
know that I am engaged to get married to 
my girlfriend of three years, Angela, that I 
met in NJ, and we are getting married in 
Newport, RI in April of 2007." Jen (Noon) 
Hess reports: "Can't remember the last time 
I wrote, so I don't know if I've mentioned 
my wedding in May of 2005 to Tom Hess, 
with the fabulous Kate Atkins as a brides- 
maid. I'm still in Woburn, MA, and I just had 
a baby. Alexander Stefan Hess was born 
8/1/06. He was five days early, but he 
thoughtfully allowed us to go to the Red 
Sox game the night before he arrived, where 
we got to see Big Papi launch one of his clas- 
sic game-winning homers! Good baby. I 
know I'm biased, but he is truly an adorable 
little guy. He's just started smiling, making 
him even more ridiculously cute. This almost 
makes up for the lack of sleep." Deirdre 
Heersink is enjoying her last year of medical 
school and her second child. Myles, born 
April 24th, joins his older sister Fiona, who 
is almost three. 

As for me. Cassia Wickes Firenze, my 
summer was a busy one. After my wedding 
in June, we moved into our home in 
Belmont and honeymooned in Alaska. It's 
funny to travel so far and wind up right back 
where I started. I'm thrilled to be back in 
the Boston area. My husband's gelateria, 
Angelato, is enjoying its second year and is 
worth the trip, so please stop by when you're 
in the area. 

It was great to hear from so many of

He is glad to hear that the boyz had a good 
ol' time. There is not too much new for him 
- still working in Boston, but he is looking 
for a new place to live. He might be moving 
to Newburyport so he can be closer to the

a great time at reunion. He was happy to see 
that the class and school is doing very well. I 
would like to reiterate Mike's point that the 
school looks great and the building projects 
have drastically improved the school since 
the last time I visited. Jessica (Stormont)

missed the reunion as it sounds like it was a 
great time. She says that "27" was a crazy, and 
completely wonderful, year for her. She 
started the year off as acting Managing 
Editor at her press company until the birth 
of her daughter(!) Quinn in November. 
Now that she is home with her, she admits 
that she does miss nary a comma—and she 
does not think that she has ever spent so 
much of each day smiling in her life. Her 
family is back in Massachusetts and they 
moved to St. Mark's School in July, where 
her husband will be a science teacher. She 
wished the best to everyone and feel free to 
contact her at 

Kathryn (McCandless) Barbosa writes 
thatVander and she have a beautiful baby boy 
(already eight months!) named Thomas 
Wilson. He was born January 11, 2005 and 
is the light of their lives. They planned to 
show him off at the reunion but he came 
down with a fever the night before. The best 
laid plans... Anyway, best wishes to aU! 

Katie Lyons writes that she had a great 
time visiting with everyone at Reunion 
2006. It was a lot of fun to catch up and find 
out what everyone has been up to. She is fi- 
nally back in the New England area and it is 
so good to be home. Her fiance Ryan and 
she moved into a house in Medford at the 
end of this summer and they're looking for- 
ward to having their wedding in Boston in 
February. He will be finishing up his Active 
Duty Pilot Training with the Air National 
Guard so they are looking forward to some 
long overdue time together. She received her 
Master's in Criminal Justice from BU in May 
and is working as a Forensic Interviewer for 
the Middlesex District Attorney's Office. 
Those are all the updates that she has. For 
those in the area, give Katie a call/email 
(603) 660-2893 or 
She'd love to catch up. Chris Coleman re- 
ports: "I have recently uprooted myself from 
rural Maine, and now live in Brighton, MA. 
I am currently teaching fourth grade at the 
Chestnut Hill School, while pursuing a 
Master's degree in Elementary Education at 
Boston CoUege." 

Todd Walters writes: "In August I 
completed my thesis to graduate from my 
Master's program in International Peace & 
Conflict Resolution at the School of 
International Service at American 
University. I am now pursuing grants to de- 
velop a new tool for peace building, based 
on Outdoor Experiential Education and 
Wilderness Adventure Treks. Think of an 
Outward Bound or NOLS course where 
you bring together the future leaders from 
divided societies (say Northern Ireland or 
South Africa) and build the conflict resolu- 
tion exercises, such as facilitated dialogues for 
breaking down stereotypes, into the wilder- 
ness adventure course, which naturally stim- 
ulates cooperation, trust building, forming of 
the bonds of friendship, and overcoming 
challenges together. I am based out of 

Washington DC, but return home to my 
roots in West Newbury regularly; and often 
see Professor Ray Long, and sometimes Jeflf 
LaBelle, Andy Ramirez and Jerry Vasicko. 

Well, I Jefj&ey LaBelle, would Hke to 
write in closing that it was great to catch up 
with everyone at reunion. AU is well out in 
Chicago and looking forward to doing some 
good diving out in Belize later in the fall. 
Hopefully, we can hear fiom more of you for 
the next edition.

"Weighdess" David Chapman '98 

David Chapman, who has recently 
been continuing with schooHng in Seattle, 
was asked by a physics professor to be a part 
of a team set out to evaluate a method of re- 
moving coalesced bubbles from heating ele- 
ments in a liquid medium under conditions 
present in Space. (Without gravity they just 
remain where they are produced and form 
an insulating barrier to heating effectiveness) 
Their experiment used various strengths of 
ultra-sound in an apparatus in which they si- 
multaneously video-ed and viewed the re- 
sults by laptop. See photo of David applying 
the various generated strengths of the ultra- 
sound. On 7/14/06 they flew in NASA's 
Johnson Space Center aircraft (a.k.a. ... the 
"vomit comet") and tested during thirty 
Zero G and several Lunar and Martian grav- 
ity maneuvers. No, he didn't get air-sick, but 
about 60% of the students did. He said the 
experiment was a success and the experience 
was "sensational". And, of course, it will be 
memorable regardless of the success.

I, Catherine Correia, am still living 
and doing research at the University of 
Florida in Gainesville. Just last week was my 
one-year anniversary of Uving in Gainesville, 
and I thought I might share a number of ob- 
servations/lessons I have learned over the last 
year: (1.) The area I Uve in is probably bet- 
ter termed as Southern Georgia, instead of 
Northern Florida. (2.) A cold front means 
that the temperature has dropped into the 
low 80s. (3.) Road kill is not just road kill; 
for some it may be dinner as well. (4.) The 
Confederate flag is still used widely, often 
seen as a bumper sticker or flying on the 
back of a pick-up truck and is referred to as 
the 'Rebel Flag'. Many claim this flag repre- 
sents 'Southern Pride". (5.) Being called a 
Yankee is not an insult when living in the 
South. It took me a few seconds to realize I 
was not being called a NY Yankee, but a 
Northerner and when I did realized I 
thanked my lucky stars that I am a Yankee 
and not a Red Neck! That being said I am 
enjoying Southern living. Everyone is in- 
credibly nice and lots of fun and it's wonder- 
ful to see another part of the country. Labor 
Day weekend I spent exploring the Florida 
Keys by land and sea with firiends.

Speaking of Southern Georgia... 
Gretchen Gee is still living in Albany, 
Georgia. She also just got a new puppy, 
named Purell or Ell for short. She is quite 
the proud mama and I'm sure she'd love to 
send you lots of pictures if you are interest- 
ed! Gretchen sent me an album of about 50 
pictures. I figured that a couple of the pic- 
tures would be of her, where she is living, or 
of friends; but no, all the pictures were of the 
dog. Lyndsey Riley writes: "I have had a 
fun-filled summer visiting with many friends 
throughout my adventures. I went to 
California to Reggae on the River with the 
'ladies' (Thea Boland, KX Scharfe, and

Meztger and Jesse Lee while in New York

apartment in the city. Life is good!" 

Elizabeth Tomasino has completed her 
Master of Science degree from Cornell 
University last May. She is currently doing a

hopes to start work on her PhD next year.

Remember what you loved about being a 
student at the Academy? Pass it on. 





I can hear it today as well as I 
could in 1959 playing St. Mark's at 
lome in the mud for the League 
.Championship. Mr. Navins — not 
Coach, not Buster - would rally us 
with "play better than you know 
how." And w^e did. 

In 2002, the Academy 
created the Schoolhouse 
Society to honor those who 
establish planned gifts through 
estates, gift annuities, bequests 
and trusts for the school. 

I can see it today as w^ell as I could see it sitting dazed in Mr. 
Bariskill's Latin basement class in Perkins. One of the students, 
and not the only one, came unprepared. Big mistake. Led out- 
side, Mr. Barriskill shut and locked Mr. Unprepared's neck tie 
right at the knot in the w^indow. Mr. Barriskill offered a lifelong 
piece of advice, "Prepare or perish." 

And glee club and speech class impresario, Mr. Sager, saying 
"if you can't sing, for heaven's sake, smile." Mr. Miller taking us 
to Dodge's Farm in his new^ '88 Olds. Mr. Murphy playing me, 
the human tripod, on the rink in front of Eames when he could 
have, should have left me on the bench. 

I can still remember everyone in my class. Names may 
require some prompting nowadays, but the faces bring back 
great memories. John Hyslop, Rick Benner, Jim Deveney, Bob 
Rimer - so many others. This is my chance to thank all of you 
for the little pieces of you that are me. 

A gift through one's will (as Arnie Wood 
ms kindly planned) can be a meaningful 
expression of your feelings towards your 

Id school and its value in continuing the 

tradition of education, opportunity, and 

Iperience for young hearts and minds. If 

)u would like to join your classmates in 

le Schoolhouse Society by making a 

laritable bequest intention for the 

pademy, we encourage you to contact 

-. If you've already included the 

Academy in your will but haven't notified 

us, please consider doing so as we would 

like to thank you appropriately. 

So be prepared, smile, play better than you know how and be
